CTFA to host GMP training for cosmetics manufacturing

The safety of cosmetic products is an issue often on the minds of manufacturers, raw material suppliers and regulators. The International Standardization Organisation (ISO) has published ISO 22716:2008 as a guidance on the safe manufacturing of cosmetic products under a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) regime. Regulators in several countries and regions have adopted this standard. The South African Draft regulations also require that the principles of this standard be implemented for local compliance.


ISO 22716

ISO 22716 provides a comprehensive approach for a quality management system for those engaged in the manufacturing, packaging, testing, storage, and transportation of cosmetic finished products

This training aims to promote the understanding of GMP across the entire cosmetics product supply chain. In addition, it provides a resource for those organisations interested in implementing the specific requirements of the standard in order to support their business at a domestic or international level within the cosmetic industry.
