Good Manufacturing Practices are a set of production guidelines put in place by a nation's ruling drug regulation agency (FDA in the U.S., EMA in Europe, etc.), which are used to ensure that the product in question meets a pre-determined standard. More specifically, GMP's require the manufacturer to follow procedures which guarantee the identity, strength, qaulity, and purity of the product. This offers consumers peace of mind in knowing that the drug not only meets label claims, but that it is free of impurities or other unwanted additives.

What does GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) mean and why is it important to you?
GMP guidelines are not a set of rigid instructions on how to manufacture products. Rather, they are a set of general principles or guidelines that must be complied with during the manufacturing process. So long a company abides by these rules in a manner that garners approval from the ruling drug regulation agency, it is the responsibility of each company to determine for itself the most efficient means of incorporating these guidelines, while minimizing out of pocket expense.
While most countries have adopted some type of formal system designed to regulate product quality in the pharmaceutical industry, not all have officially recognized GMP's as a fundamental component of the production process. Among those who have implemented them, these guidelines are not universal in nature, but can vary based on the legislation of each country. Regardless, the purpose of these guidelines remains the same; to protect the health of consumer. It is worth noting that pharmaceutical companies world-wide incorporate GMP's into their production process as part of their overall quality control program.
The Food and Drug Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. Its job, as it applies to the pharmaceutical industry, is to protect and promote public health through the regulation and supervision of pharmaceutical drugs. Prior to any drug being released to market in the United States, it must undergo a rigorous, extensive, and costly approval process by the FDA.
The FDA approval process exists solely to ensure that a drug is suitable for human use and is completely separate from Good Manufacturing Practices, which governs the production of drugs. Therefore, only after a drug has been FDA approved do GMP guidelines become relevant. However, it is important to note that FDA approval only applies to drugs sold within the United States. As mentioned above, each country or group of countries has its own regulatory agency (their own version of the FDA) which oversees the approval process for prescription drugs.
Without a universal regulatory agency in place, it should come as no surprise that the approval or rejection of drugs can vary based on geographical location. For example, trenbolone is a non-approved drug in the U.S., while countries such as France and India have approved it for human use. Therefore, just because the FDA has rejected a certain drug for human use, it does not necessarily mean it is inappropriate or unsafe for use by humans. It is simply the opinion of that particular ruling body. These disagreements are common, resulting in vastly different pharmacopoeias around the globe.
As a consumer of AAS, it is important to understand the difference between FDA approval and GMP approval. Many within the United States misinterpret FDA approval as a measure of product quality, when in reality there is no such correlation between the two. Rather, it is GMP approval which signifies that a drug has been produced under strict quality control guidelines, while drug regulation agencies (such as the FDA) simply determine whether or not a particular drug is permitted for human use in that nation.
By comparison, most companies involved in the steroid business are known as Underground Labs, or UGLs, for short. These products are produced in a completely unregulated environment devoid of any officially recognized quality control measures. It is not uncommon for these products to be produced in basements, garages, and even bathrooms. They are frequently plagued with a variety of quality control issues ranging from sterility concerns, purity & potency issues, and improper labeling.
