The Global Retailer and Manufacturer Alliance (GRMA) is a global nonprofit Certification Program Owner (CPO) with members from most major retailers, manufacturers, trade associations and certification bodies. The alliance was formed to develop an auditing scheme that utilized consensus-based quality system standards for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) through the American National Standards process in several Non-Food related industries. As a CPO we provide an additional layer of oversight to our partner Certification Bodies to improve consumer confidence and are committed to:

  • Strengthening safety, quality and trust throughout the supply chain

  • Ensuring consistency and proper training of auditors

  • Reducing the number of audits and financial costs associated with audits

  • Combining regulatory requirements and retailer quality requirements

  • Having all certifying bodies able to certify the new standards
