Good Manufacturing Practices: Ensuring Quality & Consistency

Evidence on Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) is one of the essential elements when building the Product Information File of a cosmetic product. The Good Manufacturing Practices were created in  order to ensure that during the manufacturing process health  requirements are taken in consideration.

The GMP is only in  reference to the entity which actually produces the product (the  producer). However, any entity placing cosmetic products onto the EU market under its name is required to have evidence of GMP (in reference to its different producers) as part of their Product Information File (PIF).

Evidence on Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) can be obtained through:

  • Self declaration by the producer(s)
  • A third-party certificate in reference to an on-site audit


European regulation directs that the CEN/ISO Norm 22716 serves as presumption of conformity towards GMP.
