GMP for Cosmetic Manufacturers with sub-contractors

According to EN ISO 22716 on Cosmetics — Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) — Guidelines on Good Manufacturing Practices Article 12 – Subcontracting.

The GMP certificate is to be issued only to the producer (the one which actually produces the cosmetic products) and not to the manufacturer as it can be that a manufacturer does not actually produce anything (only owns the bands) hence there is nothing to certify.

The manufacturer will be required to properly document in its PIF (Product Information File) the evidence that his producer has obtained a GPM certificate for the production of his cosmetic products – that is sufficient in regards to the conformity with the NEW EC 1223/2009 European Cosmetic Regulation (and 76/768/EEC Directive).
