ISO 22716:2007 GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices for Cosmetics)

ISO 22716:2007 is the international standard for the good manufacturing practices (GMP) for cosmetics. The guidelines for the standard have been approved and accepted by a many global regulatory bodies, such as the International Cooperation on Cosmetics Regulation (ICCR), Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Committee for Standardization (CEN).

The ISO 22716 standard has been prepared for consideration by the cosmetic industry and take into account the specific needs of this sector. The standard focuses on the production, control, storage and shipment of cosmetic products. These guidelines offer organizational and practical advice on the management of the human, technical and administrative factors affecting product quality.

Good manufacturing practices (GMP) are essential to any organization looking to reduce the risk and liability of their cosmetic product that can result from poor handling within their operation.

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.

GMP offers practical and organizational guidelines to ensure the reproducibility and quality of the cosmetic product manufacturing process. It consists of implementing measures in relation to the manufacturing process, control, storage and shipment.

ISO 22716 was developed to respond to updated cosmetics regulations. 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 environmental protection aspects.
