The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and their counterpart international medical regulatory authorities require specific standards for the manufacture of medical products – these are known as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). The TGA requires GMP compliance for all steps in the manufacture of medicines regulated as prescription medicines.
While Nicotine Vaping Products (NVPs) are not currently registered as ‘medicines’ or ‘medical devices’ in Australia, GMP should still be considered the gold standard for ensuring the safety of NVPs. Medical practitioners should seek to prescribe NVPs certified as being manufactured in accordance with GMP.
Liber’s products are manufactured in a GMP-certifed facility and the nicotine, propylene glycol (“PG”) and vegetable glycerin (“VG”) used in our liquids are manufactured in GMP-certified facilities to US or European Pharmacopeia (USP/EP) grade.
