Many people trust meaningless quality icons like those.

Quality Claims on Fancy Icons - Not Good Indicators of the Quality of Supplements

We frequently see all sorts of icons on supplements designed to put you at ease. Those icons are strictly advertising! They are used by bad actors and good brands alike.


Many of those "GMP Certified" icons are misleading because they imply GMP practices, when the product isn’t made in a GMP Certified Manufacturing facility.

The Reason for “GMP washing”

Even if a quality brand manufactures with a factory that is certified by NSF or UL or both VeriGMP – the brand will not be able to use the NSF or UL icons on their products or website! It would cost the brand from $5,000 to $25,000 per lot – More than cost to manufacture in many cases.

VeriGMP has plans to solve this problem. Oskar Thorvaldsson said, “We have a registered trademark, called VeriGMP® which all our contract clients can use instead of the generic versions. 

Certificate of GMP Certification

Just like Registrar Corp issues a “Certificate of Registration” for companies that are FDA registered, VeriGMP® will issue a “Certificate of GMP Certification” as long as the supplements are manufactured in a GMP certified (by NSF or UL) manufacturing plant.


This can then be used by the brands in advertising. Certificates will be issued lot by lot. VeriGMP® will also certify potency, identity and purity of supplements.

Fast and Reliable Stream of Information

The core value of VeriGMP® is that we are creating a fast and reliable information stream from brands to consumers in a marketplace that sorely needs it! VeriGMP® strives to solve the most pressing problems in the supplement industry by systematically testing supplements (from a sample selected by VeriGMP® and publishing the results. 

What is needed in the supplement industry above all else is a system that enables consumers to trust brands again. This is now completely absent. VeriGMP provides an excellent solution!
