CERTIFICATIONS

FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION (FDA)

 

GSN understands and follows FDA requirements and regulations. We also maintain a current registration as an FDA Food Facility. FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation. FDA is also responsible for advancing the public health by helping to speed innovations that make medicines more effective, safer, and more affordable and by helping the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medicines and foods to maintain and improve their health. FDA also has responsibility for regulating the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of tobacco products to protect the public health and to reduce tobacco use by minors.

 

CURRENT GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICES (CGMP)

 

GMPs provide guidelines for proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. Adherence to the GMP regulations assures the identity, strength, quality, and purity of products by requiring that manufacturers adequately control manufacturing operations. This includes establishing strong quality management systems, obtaining appropriate quality raw materials, establishing robust operating procedures, detecting and investigating product quality deviations, and maintaining reliable testing laboratories.

UNITED STATES ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY(EPA)

 

GSN is a EPA registered Facility. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or sometimes USEPA) is an agency of the U.S. federal government which was created for the purpose of protecting human health and the environment by writing and enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress.The agency conducts environmental assessment, research, and education. It has the responsibility of maintaining and enforcing national standards under a variety of environmental laws, in consultation with state, tribal, and local governments. It delegates some permitting, monitoring, and enforcement responsibility to U.S. states and the federally recognized tribes. EPA enforcement powers include fines, sanctions, and other measures. The agency also works with industries and all levels of government in a wide variety of voluntary pollution prevention programs and energy conservation efforts.

 

KOSHER

 

GSN has a very good working relationship with Circle K Kosher; this relationship enables GSN to manufacture and Kosher certify products for our customers.

UNITED STATES PHARMACOPEIAL CONVENTION (USPC)

 

The U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) is a scientific nonprofit organization that sets standards for the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements manufactured, distributed and consumed worldwide. USP’s drug standards are enforceable in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration, and these standards are used in more than 140 countries.

    • Enterobacteriacea
    • Staphylococcus aureus
    • Yeast and Mold
    • Enumerations
    • Lactic Acid Bacteria
    • Pro-biotic
    • Total Aerobic Plate Count

     

  • batching & mixing

    We gravity feed raw products directly into one of our custom designed blenders. This process reduces atmospheric contact and contamination. All products are blended according to our strict guidelines, which are set forth in our MBRs and SOPs. We offer an array of blending techniques to ensure correct homogeneity and batch quality.

     

    Powder Blending Capabilities

     

    • Powder Dry Blending
    • Pre-Mix Bends
    • Jar and Canister Filling
    • Bulk Powders
    • Single Serve Sachets

     

  • encapsulation

    Two-Piece Hard Shell Capsule Filling

     

    We utilize a variety of Bosch H&K machinery as they are robust, high performing, and have approved dosage techniques with good weight variations that can fill a wide range of products. The machinery’s ease-of-use and adaptability make them an ideal choice for our lean manufacturing processes.

     

    Unit Dose Capabilities

     

    A primary way that we optimize our production output is through the design of our compression and encapsulation suites. Each suite is equipped with a separate air handling system for filtration, ventilation, heating, cooling, humidification, and dust collection. This allows us to ensure quality by eliminating dust proliferation and cross-contaminations.

     

    To uphold our lean philosophy and regulatory processes, each of our operators is trained in the following: machinery assemblage, operation, dismantling and cleaning. In addition, each operator runs analyses on weight, hardness, friability, and disintegration, while measuring cycle times for efficiency. By having each operator act as mechanical engineer, operator, and quality controller, we produce less waste and increase efficiencies.

     

  • tableting

    Granulation

     

    We utilize a specialized granulation process to change the density and size of some materials to facilitate optimal flow in the manufacturing process and ensure shorter disintegration times of the finished product.

     

    Granulation Capabilities

     

    • Fluid-Bed Granulation (Flow coater)
    • High Shear Granulation
    •  

    Tablet Compression

     

    By using only Stokes brand presses, we can capitalize on part interchangeability, operator knowledge, and consistency, which complement our clean philosophy.

     

    Tablet Coating

     

    Our coating operations utilize both ‘perforated pans’ for water-based solutions and ‘conventional pans’ for solvent-based solutions. However, we prefer to use our high-coater machine, which has a perforated pan and mixing baffles to ensure a uniform mix of tablet cores and equal distribution of the coating material with regulated temperatures. Similar to the rest of our manufacturing operations, our coating department is capable of both large and small commercial batches. We offer the following customized coating solutions for all customer inquiries:

    Product identity through color

    Palatability and bioavailability

    Elegant and clean product

    Increase or provide moisture barriers

    Controlled release coatings (Enteric pH delivery system)

Each suite is equipped with a separate air handling system for filtration, ventilation, heating, cooling, humidification, and dust collection.

    To uphold our clean philosophy and regulatory processes, each of our operators is trained in the following: machinery assemblage, operation, dismantling and cleaning. In addition, each operator runs analyses on weight, hardness, friability, and disintegration (DT), while measuring cycle times for efficiency. By having each operator act as mechanical engineer, operator, and quality controller, we produce less waste and increase efficiencies.
