GMP - ISO 22716 Auditing
Complying to the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) according to the ISO 22716
As of 11 July 2013, the European Union’s new Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 will require cosmetic products to be manufactured according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Cosmetics manufacturers should prepare for this new requirement now in order to avoid any loss of market approval.
One way to demonstrate compliance with GMP is to implement the international standard ISO 22716:2007. ISO 22716 introduces a management systems approach to documenting and regulating the production, control, storage, and shipment of cosmetic products. The standard’s guidelines will provide your organization with practical methods for managing the many factors that can affect product quality.
With 30 years’ experience in the health and beauty industry, Intertek brings in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing processes and GMP codes to cosmetics manufacturers.
