Independent Certification | Maharishi Ayurveda
Monday - Friday
Maharishi Ayurveda's commitment to quality is reflected in its ongoing effort to combine authentic formulation and processing techniques with cutting-edge production and quality control practices. Maharishi Ayurveda Products (MAP), our supplier in India, currently holds several recognized manufacturing certifications, including ISO, HACCP and GMP.
What is ISO?
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation with a membership representing well over 100 countries. This non-governmental organization was established in 1947 and derives its name from the Greek word "iso," which means equal. The term "equal" may be thought of synonymously with "standards." A large part of the ISO's mission is to promote the development of international standards for similar technologies, which in turn promotes worldwide exchange of goods and services. Maharishi Ayurveda is currently the only ayurvedic health supplement company in the world to meet the internationally standardized requirements for quality in the design, production and export of herbal products.
MAP's ISO Review
The stringent ISO criteria used in evaluating Maharishi Ayurveda Products (MAP) are the same as those used to assess nuclear power plants. The review targeted 20 quality categories including design control, production, storage, microbiological quality control, test equipment, standardization and calibration, product identification and handling, packaging, preservation, inspection and testing procedures.
HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) Certification requires a close focus on achieving step-by-step process quality at all "critical control points" of the production process, the objective being to produce and deliver products that are free of health hazards.
This certification is further independent authentication that Maharishi Ayurveda manufactures and distributes consistently effective, safe and reliable products batch after batch. The GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certification is issued after an independent panel of experts has done in-depth and intensive investigation to ratify that the company has established manufacturing systems and practices that ensure "fault-free, safe and consistent-quality" products.
