It took more than ten years after legislation was passed for the FDA to actually get to work in establishing and requiring current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) for the dietary supplement industry.
Not until 2006 did the FDA begin to phase in oversight for cGMP compliance.
Instead of waiting for the FDA standards for dietary supplements, industry members decided to take matters into their own hands. The Natural Products Association (NPA) and others stepped into the vacuum and established a GMP certification program.
This certification program drew from good manufacturing practices around the world and in other industries - like pharmaceutical and food manufacturing - to develop a set of manufacturing standards that ensured high quality products.
