HAND SANITIZER GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)

Hand Sanitizer manufacturers should comply with GMP regulations. GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) is a set of regulations covering the manufacturing, processing, packaging facilities and controls for manufacturing enforced by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure the quality of products such as hand sanitizers.  Good manufacturing practice guidelines provide guidance for manufacturing, testing, and quality assurance in order to ensure that a manufactured product is safe for intended human use.

The FDA regulates antiseptic hand sanitizer as an over the counter (OTC) monograph drug (TFM Part 333 A) and Hand Sanitizer GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) is applicable to any facilities engaged in dealing with Hand Sanitizers.  Hand Sanitizer manufacturers must comply with all the OTC drug regulations, which includes FDA GMP. These are the Quality Management System practices required in order to conform to the guidelines recommended by the FDA that control the authorization and licensing of the manufacture and sale of hand sanitzers.


Hand Sanitizer GMP

Manufacturers and distributors of Hand Sanitizers in the USA are required to comply with GMP requirements as per 21 CFR 211.  They must implement a Quality Management System. GMPs are overseen by regulatory agencies in various countries.  In the United States, GMP is enforced by the US FDA, but FDA does not issue a GMP certificate nor does the FDA recognize one issued by a third-party certification body.  They do site audits and inspections based on 21 CFR 211 and if any non-conformities observed FDA will issue an FDA 483 form with observations.

Another example of a GMP requirement is that facilities dealing with N95 Respirators and Surgical Face Mask  must implement a Quality Management System based on 21CFR 820

Other requirements includes US FDA Registration, NDC Labeler code, Hand Sanitizer listing with FDA, Label Compliance etc. Please refer to WWW.FDA.GOV for updated GMP requirements.
