NCNM Quality Assurance Program
Quality Assurance Information
The NCNM Medicinary is implementing new Medicinary Quality Standards (MQS). Current and future vendors will be assessed by these standards.
As part of National College of Natural Medicine's (NCNM) ongoing commitment to quality, we have adopted the use of the Emerson Quality ProgramSM (EQP) as part of the Medicinary Quality Standards, to verify the quality of many of the dietary supplements that we provide to our patients. The EQP is a rigorous supplier qualification program that relies upon a documentation audit, on–site audits and product testing in order to qualify participating brands in their program.

The NCNM Quality Assurance Program has two tiers. The first tier contains EQP Partners – brands that have passed the EQP supplier qualification process. The second tier contains brands that have chosen not to participate in the Emerson Quality Program, but have met NCNM’s internal quality standards.
If your company is an Emerson Quality Program (EQP) Partner, you will not need to apply to the NCNM QAP; however, your products will still be assessed regarding the specific needs of our NCNM faculty, students and patients. If your company is not part of the EQP, we highly recommend that you participate in this program. You may also elect to work directly with the NCNM Medicinary Quality Standards.
