Model certificate of Good Manufacturing Practices

A model certificate of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for a manufacturing site is optional (see below). This is not part of the WHO Certification proposal on the Quality of Pharmaceutical Products Moving in International Commerce but is proposed to serve in situations where a specific GMP certificate is requested by importers, exporters, procurement agencies and regulatory authorities. It is suggested that the certificate should wait valid for a period of 2 years from the date of issue, but not exceeding 3 years after the examination was carried out. It is recommended that, where possible, GMP certificates should have, e.g. security seals, watermarks or holograms, to help prevent counterfeiting, tampering and other fraudulent activities.
