Quality Assurance

For DSM, quality is a way of life. We pride ourselves on achieving the highest standards across our entire portfolio of vitamin active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and lipid API intermediates.

Our global production network complies to a comprehensive set of safety, health and environment policies (SHE). We are also governed by a variety of certification systems: 

  • Good Manufacturing Practice (ICH Q7) certified production 
  • Certificates of Suitability (CEPs) 
  • Compliance with various compendia: USP/EP/JP 

Quality for Life™ 

Quality for Life™ is the seal of excellence from DSM. Designed to give you peace of mind, it is a mark of product quality, reliability and traceability. It means that our customers are getting the highest-quality ingredients, knowing that they are from a safe and trusted source.  

Quality for Life™ also represents sustainability. It symbolizes DSM’s commitment to our environment, consumers, business partners, people and the regulatory framework that governs our operations. 


Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. All our global production sites are ISO 14001 certified and we continue to look for new ways of reducing the environmental impact of our activities.  

Our focus on sustainable practices goes further than simply our manufacturing processes. Through our Quality for Life™ promise, we are also committed to upholding the highest ethical values in our relationships with customers, employees and partners. 

We have consistently been named the global leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index – providing external recognition of our continuous efforts to maintain sustainable operations throughout the business.
