Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)

Good manufacturing practices (GMP) certification scheme can assist manufacturers of food products and food related products to provide assurance to their customers that their products are manufactured in a hygienic manner and in accordance to best practices in manufacturing.

Since GMP is one of the pre-requisite programmes (PRP) required to be established before Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) can be implemented, having GMP certification would definitely pave the way to an easier HACCP implementation and certification.

Generally, GMP consists of aspect such as design and facilities in the establishment, control of operations by equipment, temperature, time, pH or water activity control, maintenance and sanitation, personal hygiene, personnel training, transportation, conveyors, product information and consumer awareness. In short, it comprises the basic requirements of a manufacturing facility covering establishment, infrastructure, equipment design, construction, maintenance, process controls and personnel hygiene and awareness.

MS 1514 is the standard for prescribing the requirements of pre-requisite programmes which is required to be established before the implementation of HACCP. The standard is applicable to all food manufacturers, primary and secondary processors, food catering and service operators, food retailers and food related industries
