Shanghai, China – NSF, a leading public health and safety organization, today announced that Life-Space, a probiotics manufacturer based in Hong Kong, China, has earned NSF/ANSI 455-2 Dietary Supplements Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification for its manufacturing facility in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. This marks the first facility in Australia certified to NSF/ANSI 455-2.
"By successfully certifying to NSF/ANSI 455-2 GMP standard, we received verification from an independent third party to produce dietary supplements while meeting industry best practices and regulatory standards. The NSF certification is valued by consumers, retailers, and regulatory agencies worldwide; we are able to represent the quality of our products, knowing this is the right thing to do for our customers,” said Alan Yi, CEO of Hong Kong Life-Space Company Limited. “We are excited to be certified by NSF to help inspire others in the industry to get on board as well.”
The NSF/ANSI 455-2 GMP standard is designed to strengthen safety, quality, and trust throughout the supply chain. The certification combines regulatory requirements with retailer quality requirements to reduce the number of audits and financial costs associated with audits. The use of GMP guidelines helps companies develop and maintain proper controls in manufacturing processes so products are processed, manufactured, and labeled in a consistent manner, and meet quality standards.
“The NSF/ANSI 455-2 GMP certification mark indicates that an NSF auditor has audited a facility, checked documents, and deemed the facility compliant with GMP standard requirements for production,” said David Trosin, Senior Director, Global Health Sciences Certification at NSF. “We’re pleased to see our footprint expand internationally as we enter Australia with this certification for Life-Space.”
This is the first time a BYHEALTH facility, which owns Life-Space, has achieved GMP certification for dietary supplements.
“We’re proud the NSF health sciences certification team in China could provide our domestic client with quality overseas service for its Australia-based facility,” said Dr. Yulong Shan, Managing Director, NSF China.
