Glossary Term: Compliance

Manufacturing compliance is the technical, legal and corporate regulations imposed on an organization that must be followed for the production and marketing of products. Regulations can range from environmental standards, health and safety laws, and product safety requirements and may impact manufactures directly or indirectly based on the products it produces.

The FDA oversees consumer safety, one of the largest regulatory mandates. As laid out by the FDA in Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), there are extensive measures and processes that must be taken to ensure the quality and safety of products for the consumer. When regulations are met products are granted a manufacturer’s certificate of compliance showing the product has met all regulations in the GMP.
