ISO 22716: 2007 Cosmetics Sector Certification

ISO 22716: 2007 Cosmetics Industry Certification

Ensuring high quality in the cosmetics industry.

Your challenge

If you operate within the cosmetics industry you must ensure the quality and environmental management of your products, as well as guaranteeing those products are safe for consumers.

The industry has already adopted quality and environmental practices and is now undertaking the implementation of Good Manufacturing Practices for all products to be marketed in Europe or in the USA, Japan or ASEAN, where strict requirements also apply.

Furthermore, organic cosmetic products have emerged as a consumer trend. Demonstrating a product’s organic content has become key in today's marketing strategies.
