NSF International, the venerable public health and safety organization, has awarded sports nutrition company SK Laboratories, Inc. with the Good Manufacturing Practices Certification for Dietary Supplement Manufacturing and the Certified for Sport® Certification.
NSF International independently tests, audits, certifies, trains and consults for the food, water, health science, and sustainability and consumer product sectors. NSF International ensures product and ingredient safety through Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) compliance, accredited certification programs, testing services and training. GMPs are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures and documentation to assure a product has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity that appear on its label. NSF International only certifies manufacturers that exceed its strict compliance standards.
NSF International’s Certified for Sport® program was established to meet the growing demands of athletes, coaches, and all those concerned about banned substances in sports nutrition supplements. The program certifies that what is on the label is in the bottle and that the product does not contain unsafe levels of contaminants, prohibited substances and masking agents. NSF International scientists screen sports supplements for more than 270 banned or prohibited substances including narcotics, steroids, stimulants, hormones, and related substances including diuretics and masking agents. Certified for Sport® Certification is awarded only to supplement manufacturers that have met NSF International’s stringent independent certification process. The guidelines for certification were developed through a consensus process involving regulatory, sports industry and consumer groups.
“We at SK Laboratories are honored to receive these NSF International certifications,” said Bansi Patel, CEO of SK Laboratories, Inc. “We have reached many great milestones over the past few years ensuring the utmost in safety and quality for our customers, and we are particularly proud of these achievements.”
