CVS GMP and TAP Audit Program
Good Manufacturing Practice is a philosophy ensuring products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate for their intended use and conform to the regulatory requirements stipulated by health authorities. Good Manufacturing Practices are fundamental to any manufacturing industry and are often required to be implemented in plants and factories by national governments.
CVS Health partners with a 3rd party audit service provider to help ensure our philosophy is applied throughout our Store Brand network. The 3rd party audit service provider participates in scheduling and conducting facility audits. In addition, this audit partner helps to manage the review and closure of CAPAs resulting from the audit. CVS Health’s current preferred audit partner is UL.
UL Verification Services, Inc. – Supplier Quality Audits & Certification
UL provides auditing services with regards to the Retail Certification Program (RCP) and the UL Technical Audits Program. UL is an ANSI/ANAB accredited international provider of management system certification and registration services.
Secondary Audit Service Provider
From time to time, CVS Health may request that a supplier be audited by a different 3rd party audit provider, at their discretion. This will be determined by CVS Health and such request made through them when applicable. The secondary service provider utilized will be approved by CVS.
