    Default GMP Quality Assured ??

    I think GMP Quality Assured stands for General Manufacturing Practices
    Quality Assured, and is a seal on my Now Foods supplements.

    Recently a NY Times article
    <http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2009/06/09/health/AP-US-MED-Remedies-Consumer-Tips.html>
    talked about

    "seals of approval" from independent groups that have standards to
    help ensure the product was properly made, contains what the label
    says, and is free of contaminants. These groups include
    Consumerlab.com, NSF and the U.S. Pharmacopeia.

    None of the above seem to list (as far as I can find) Now Foods.

    I'm trying to find out if the GMP represents some type of equivalent
    standard, or any info on what it means.

    GMP means something adheres to the regulations for Good Manufacturing
    Practices - as laid out in CFR 11 (Code of Federal Regulations, part
    11). They are VERY detailed.
