Healthcare and Beauty Supply Chain Strategies

CEE has been transformed into the Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 which is applicable in each member state

This new EU Cosmetics Regulation forces the application of GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices) according to the ISO Standard NF EN ISO 22716 which gives guidelines for the production, control, storage and shipment of cosmetic for each production site. Compliance with this regulation will help you to reduce your "non-quality" costs and returned goods, avoid recalls and optimise your supply chain.

In parallel to this, you must also make sure that your suppliers of raw materials, packaging components and point-of-sale articles respect the EU REACH Regulations.
