International Standard ISO 22716:2007 Cosmetics

Perfect Potion gained certification against the International Standard ISO 22716:2007 Cosmetics – Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in January, 2014.

The introduction of ISO 22716 marks a major step in the realisation of a globally recognised standard for cosmetic products safety. The content of ISO 22716:2007 Guidelines on Good Manufacturing Practices for Cosmetic Products has been approved and accepted by a number of regulatory bodies around the world. For example the International Cooperation on Cosmetic Regulation (ICCR) – a joint effort by the USA, the European Union, Japan and Canada – agreed in their July 2008 meeting to implement ISO 22716 in their respective regions, wherever possible. The result is an international, auditable standard that specifies the requirements for cosmetic products safety management systems by incorporating the elements of GMP and risk assessment in combination with a comprehensive quality management system.

ISO 22716 gives guidelines for the production, control, storage and shipment of cosmetic products. These guidelines cover the quality and safety aspects of the product.
