March 13, 2014 — Pharmax, a Seroyal brand, recently announced its recognition as an Emerson Quality Program (EQP) Gold Partner. EQP is a one-of-a-kind quality assurance program for the nutritional supplements industry, which provides practitioners with manufacturer-specific information to assist in confidently recommending the highest quality products to their patients.
“Seroyal prides itself on using only the highest quality methods and ingredients for all of its brands. Pharmax is no exception,” stated Yves Yau, president, Seroyal International. “It is an honor to hold the EQP Gold Partner status, and a testament to our quality assurance and overall standards we provide to our customers.”
To achieve EQP Gold Partner standards, which ensure quality practices consistent with the production of high quality, safe and reliable dietary supplements, Emerson Ecologics completed an on-site audit. EQP Gold Standards include EQP Silver Partner standards and:
Analytical testing on each batch of raw material or finished product for: identity, potency (label claim) and microbiological contaminants as well as other applicable analytical tests on ingredients at high risk for certain impurities (e.g. solvents for concentrates, pesticides for non-organics, melamine for animal proteins, aflatoxin for high risk herbs/foods, adulterants)
A real time stability program is in use to ensure that all finished products meet label claim throughout shelf life
Products contain active ingredients in sufficient quantities to be clinically effective
Evidence of total quality (such as: research and product development, sustainable environmental practices, clinical trial support, good business practices)
“We are so pleased to welcome Pharmax into our EQP program as a Gold Partner, an affirmation of their dedication to quality and a reinforcement of the strong reputation and trust they have earned with our practitioner customers,” says Jaclyn Chasse, ND, medical director, Emerson Ecologics.
