Cosmetics audits – GMP and more

Good manufacturing practice for cosmetics (cosmetics GMP) has been in place for years and is based on the ISO 22716 standard, which functions as a set of GMP guidelines for the cosmetics industry. It can require cosmetics manufacturers, sales and retail companies to take certain actions. It also affects medicinal products manufacturers which carry a supplementary range of cosmetics.

Working as an auditor, Diapharm offers its clients tailored audits, such as the supervision of GMP regulations, customer-specific supplier audits or in-house mock audits. Once an audit has been completed, Diapharm can offer additional services for implementing measures derived from it. Within this context, we provide companies with a range of consultancy and supportive services, such as assistance with establishing or optimising their cosmetics manufacturing processes in compliance with GMP regulations and Regulation (EC) 1223/2009.
