Control is a very important factor, especially when it comes to high-quality health and care products for people with particularly high quality standards. We are aware of our responsibility towards our customers. In order to ensure the highest quality and safety of our products, everything is properly controlled.
In Germany, all dietary supplements and cosmetic products are controlled by the responsible state authorities when they enter the market. The legal reporting obligation ensures that these products are actually checked. This means that all food supplements and cosmetic products must be reported to the responsible authorities when they enter the market.
Manufacturers who want to place a food supplement on the market in Germany must notify the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) before placing the product on the market, in accordance with the statutory provisions. This means that without the prior registration of the product with this state authority, the product may not be sold in Germany. This control mechanism ensures that the state monitoring authorities responsible for the controls know exactly which products are in circulation in Germany, who is responsible for these products and where these products are stored or sold. The product label must be submitted when registering the product. On this basis, the authority can check the accuracy of all information required by law and the permissibility of the ingredients used.
All cosmetic products that are to be made available on the market in the European Union must first be reported to the EU Commission via the CPNP system. Based on this notification, it is checked whether the cosmetic products meet the requirements of the EU Cosmetics Regulation. Among other things, it is checked whether the following requirements are met:
- The responsible person or the responsible company must be named.
- The product information file (containing a safety report created by experts) must be available.
- The product must comply with the substance regulations. These include, for example, the prohibitions, restrictions and positive lists.
- The GMP guidelines (Good Manufacturing Practice) must be observed when manufacturing the cosmetic products.
- The cosmetic product must be notified in the central notification portal of the European Commission 'CPNP'.
- The labeling of the product must meet the requirements of Article 19 of the EU Cosmetics Regulation.
In addition, the German monitoring authorities check whether the products also comply with the regulations of the German Cosmetics Ordinance. These include, for example, the manufacturing announcement and regulations on the language of all cosmetic products and the labeling of loose goods.
As you can see, the responsible control authorities already have extensive knowledge of these products before the first market entry of dietary supplements and cosmetic products and can therefore evaluate them. Information on the newly registered products will be communicated to the responsible regional control authorities at the headquarters of the responsible company. These authorities then control the companies on site.
All companies in Germany that manufacture, store or sell food supplements and cosmetics are controlled by the responsible regional control authorities. Such operational controls take place without prior notice. All business rooms, objects and equipment, transport vehicles and documentation are checked at regular intervals. Product samples are also taken as part of the checks. After an operational control, a control report is entered into the uniform Bavarian database TIZIAN. As a result, all controls remain traceable at all times.
Previtalica has never been found to have any deficiencies or violations by the control authorities.
Controls by the experts
Before registering with the responsible authorities, all Previtalica products are checked in advance by state-recognized experts. This gives us the certainty that we are registering controlled and safe products with the authorities. The legal provisions in the area of food supplements and cosmetics are strict, complex and constantly changing. The experts check the entire documentation and ensure that Previtalica products are marketable and do not contain any substances that are subject to legal restrictions. We only register our products with the authorities after the experts have checked every detail of each product and have issued us with the relevant certificates.
Controls by the official veterinarian
Only natural raw materials of animal origin are used in the manufacture of products from the "Peptide Bioregulators" series. These come exclusively from healthy young animals, calves and pigs that are not older than 11 months. All of these animals are always carefully examined by the responsible veterinarian before slaughter. Only when the animal is released for human consumption by the official veterinarian is it properly slaughtered and processed.
Controls by laboratory
All raw materials destined for the manufacture of Previtalica products are thoroughly checked by experienced laboratory personnel immediately after their manufacture (extraction) and then sealed and stored professionally. Each time before a certain amount of the substances is handed over to production, this is examined by an independent laboratory and certified with a certificate. Before production, there are always so-called raw material incoming inspections. However, the additives that we use in our products are also controlled in the same way. Nothing is used in production without being thoroughly checked.
Finished products are tested in the factory laboratory immediately after manufacture. In addition, product samples from each batch are examined and certified by an independent laboratory. In addition, all food supplements and cosmetic products in Germany are subject to controls by state regulators. That is why our finished products are regularly checked by state inspectors in our company. In such controls, product samples are also taken and then examined by independent laboratories. No impairments have been found.
All products manufactured by us are certified in Germany. In addition, many of our products are tested and certified by government agencies in other European countries.
With so many controls, Previtalica products are probably the most controlled products.
