Cosmetics - Good Manufacturing Practices
ISO 22716:2007 gives guidelines for the production, control, storage and shipment of cosmetic products. These guidelines cover the quality aspects of the product, but as a whole do not cover safety aspects for the personnel engaged in the plant, nor do they cover aspects of protection of the environment. The guidelines in ISO 22716:2007 are not applicable to research and development activities and distribution of finished products.
It aims to enhance the safety of consumer cosmetic products through tight definition of manufacturing good practice across all elements of the supply chain leading to the production of the correct cosmetics to the correct specification.
This means involvement from start to finish, including manufacturers of raw materials as well as finished cosmetic producers, distributors, importers and exporters.
Certification to ISO 22716 provides compliance to all of the recommendations of the Cosmetics GMP Guidelines through its approach to documentation and regulation of the production, control, conditioning, storage and shipment of product.
