What is ISO 22716?


The ISO 22716 standard ‘Cosmetics – Good Manufacturing Practices’ is globally acknowledged and used as our backbone for cosmetic GMP audits in Europe. It gives guidelines to produce cosmetic final products, control, storage, and shipment. It also states general requirements for production facilities, equipment, hygiene, personnel, laboratory evaluation, labelling, documentation, complaint, and recall handling.


Cosmetic regulations worldwide express the need to produce cosmetic products according to ’Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)’, which means that they are safe and healthy. Meeting this GMP standard will increase your competitive advantage on the market and you will gain confidence of your stakeholders. We help your company to prepare for authority inspections or ISO 22716 certification, ensure GMP compliance of your supply chain and contract manufacturer.

Cosmetic manufacturer or Cosmetic ingredient supplier

As a cosmetic manufacturer or cosmetic ingredient supplier, the quality and safety of your raw material is key. The Good Manufacturing Practice published by the European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients (EFfCI) is our manual while assessing the production, control, packaging, storage, and distribution of cosmetic ingredients. The ISO 9001 ‘Quality Management System’ certification program is the basis for the implementation of EFfCI GMP compliance. We assist you with the review and installation of this quality standard.
