The World Health Organization (WHO) is an international public health agency that is responsible for setting global healthcare standards.

In order to obtain WHO-GMP, a manufacturing facility must comply with a number of stringent requirements, including the following:
- The quality and safety of products must be assured through rigorous testing
- The premises and equipment must be carefully maintained and controlled
- Staff must be adequately trained and qualified
- The company must have an effective quality management system in place
- Records must be kept of all products and processes
