ISO 22716 has emerged as the preeminent international standard when implementing a Cosmetics GMP programme. Drafted by the International Standards Organization, ISO 22716 is a guarantee of international recognition that you take Cosmetics GMP seriously. ISO 22716 can be implemented by organisations of any size and anywhere in the world.

It is recognised as the gold standard for the production, control, storage and shipment of cosmetics products.

As experience shows, it only takes one weak link in the supply chain, or a slight quality defect to cause skin or health problems for the consumer and consequently severely damage a brand’s reputation.
