Cosmetics, by their nature, must ensure that the product is of good quality and that the product is safe for consumers.
Currently, the cosmetics industry is demanding the implementation of GMP, a good manufacturing practice, for all products sold in Europe, the United States, Japan and ASEAN where stringent requirements apply.
The ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 18001, and ISO 22716 requirements are international standards that can be applied to enhance the competitiveness of the cosmetics industry.
- ISO 22716 is published as "Cosmetics GMP (Guidelines on Good Manufacturing Practices)" on November 15, 2007 as an international cosmetic standard.
In ISO 22716, the competitiveness of the implementation and maintenance of the cosmetic quality system (work system) as well as the manufacturing facility standards (GMP) of the cosmetics companies is a very important evaluation factor.
The international community is also strengthening legal regulations by institutionalizing mandatory compliance with cosmetic GMP, and strengthening the introduction and application of ISO 22716, the GMP standard for cosmetics, in order to enhance the competitiveness of cosmetic manufacturing companies.
