B documents

GMP+ International may be owner of the GMP+ FRA certification, but GMP+ International does not define the standards of this scheme. Instead, we follow the standards and definitions of various respected market initiatives. On this page you'll find the B documents and we’ll introduce you to these market initiatives and the available GMP+ FRA scopes.

Before applying for your own GMP+ FRA certificate, it is important to first determine for what GMP+ FRA scope(s) you want to be certified. GMP+ FRA consists of various scopes, each developed by a specific market initiative, in collaboration with GMP+ International.

Please note: In addition to mentioned MI documents below, every scope has the same general conditions as specified in GMP+ B100.
