Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)

As of June 2022, Vivariant is licensed by Health Canada with a Drug Establishment License (DEL). To test pharmaceutical products, a laboratory must be accredited to GMP standards. This is an internationally accepted system for ensuring products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. The DEL is an accreditation from Health Canada that our quality system is appropriate for GMP pharmaceutical testing. GMP practices are also followed in other industries including cannabis, cosmetics, food, and natural health products/dietary supplements.

ISO/IEC 17025

Vivariant is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited by Canada Association of Laboratory Accreditation (CALA). ISO/IEC 17025 is useful for any organization that performs testing, and wants reliable results. It is the international standard for which labs are accredited to be recognized as technically competent, impartial, and consistent in their operations.
