ABOUT The ISO 22716 Standard

The ISO 22716 Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for cosmetics was introduced to provide guidelines for the production, control, storage and distribution of cosmetic products. It places emphasis on the quality of the cosmetic product in relation to the customer, as well as the traceability and accountability in the production and distribution process. In addition, the guide complements any existing management systems in place, such as ISO 9001.

Most current manufacturing and production processes are thoroughly examined and evaluated for their use and production. With ISO 22716, not only do you receive a guideline for your business’ path, but you also commit to ensuring the safety, quality and excellence of your product.

Your Company's manufacturing system will be audited and inspected in the following areas:ISO 22716 Certification

  • Complaints and recalls
  • Contracting/subcontracting
  • Documentation and records
  • Internal audits and laboratory quality controls
  • Material management
  • Packaging and labeling
  • Personnel
  • Premises, buildings or facilities
  • Production and in-process controls
  • Storage and distribution
