Good Manufactoring Practices

Join us on December 4th for an evening with Roy Upton, who will cover everything you need to know and answer your questions about the new FDA regulations about Good Manufactuing Practices for Herbal Medicines.

As herbalism continues to grow and become more popular, herbalists increasingly find themselves under the scrutiny of governing agencies, such as the FDA. Find out how to do what you love legally and safely.

This class is an absolute MUST for anyone who wants to sell or dispense any kind of her
bal product to the public.

Because we really want to get this info out there, this class is FREE to alumni and current students. Other community members are asked to pay $50. Either way, you have to RSVP so we can save you a spot! Drop us an email at ohlonecenter@gmail.com to register for what will probably be a sold-out event.

From Roy:
“Many practicing herbalists and those with cottage herbal businesses are not fully aware of the good manufacturing practices (GMPs) FDA expects all manufacturers to follow. This presentation will provide an overview of FDA’s expectations regarding GMPs, including both the spirit and letter of the GMP rules and regulations, with an emphasis on practices the community herbalist can implement to fulfill customer expectations of product quality and purity, as well as satisfy basic GMP requirements.”

Roy Upton has been working professionally as a herbalists for more than 30 years. He is trained in Western, Chinese, and Ayurvedic herbal medicine and is an expert on botanical ingredient quality control and regulatory issues. Roy is the president and editor of the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, director of Planetary Herbals, and is a member of the American Herbal Products Association Standards Committee.
