Register Now for the AKA GMP Standards Program!
First "Training Webinar" on Thursday, August 30, 7:00pm ET


Dear Kratom Vendors,


Registration is now open for the AKA GMP Standards Program.


Please CLICK to complete the initial Registration Form:

As you all know, the FDA has been pushing for a ban on kratom for years and continues to rollout their misinformation campaign targeted at the public, legislators, and other government agencies.


Many of you live everyday under the constant threat of a kratom ban that will destroy or significantly damage your business and your ability to make a living.


Make no mistake, the FDA is going to use every advantage they can grab to distort the public image of kratom.


The FDA will use any excuse to demonize the kratom industry, including using kratom adulterators and vendors who make impermissible health claims as the face of the entire industry. We cannot allow the FDA to destroy the supply of safe kratom products with these tactics.


Our defense is simple: Secure the supply chain by adhering to good manufacturing standards in producing safe kratom products.


For this reason, the American Kratom Association is launching the GMP Standards Program. This program establishes exacting manufacturing, labeling, and verification requirements for kratom dietary supplements/dietary ingredients that meet or exceed the minimum requirements for manufacturing dietary supplements/dietary ingredients established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Companies that voluntarily participate in this program will be required to have their facility audited by an independent 3rd party that will verify the company is in compliance with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) good manufacturing practices for dietary supplements/dietary ingredients and the additional requirements established under this program.

The outpouring of support by kratom vendors across the country for this program has been tremendous.


There are several key pieces of information I wanted to highlight:


Please complete the initial registration form. This will allow us to identify the active participants and work with individuals to help answer any questions.


Full launch of the AKA GMP Standards Program will be November 16, 2018. This will give vendors a little over two months to become compliant or refine current processes. We want to give everyone the opportunity to participate.


We are conducting three “Training Webinars” on the following dates”:


Thursday, August 30, 7:00pm ET
Thursday, September 6, 7:00pm ET
Wednesday, September 26, 7:00pm ET


Please complete the initial registration and then contact Sherry Chlebowski at


I want to thank you again for all your support as we stand up against those who look to ban a natural botanical that is helping millions of

Americans manage their health and well-being.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our AKA GMP Program Coordinator, Sherry Chlebowski at


Thank you,

Pete Candland
Executive Director
