Compliance with the international guidelines, standards and directives applicable to the production of cosmetics is essential for commercial success and consumer safety. As in the pharmaceutical, medical device and food industries, cosmetic products and their production are constantly inspected to ensure they consistently meet certain standards.

The ISO 22716 standard is a combination of rules that combine ISO 9001 and GMP guidelines.  A cosmetic manufacturer that has the ISO 22716 standard is obliged to strictly comply with a wide variety of rules, from the selection of raw materials to the number of particles that must be present in the production environment, from the microbiological tests to the quality of the water used, from the qualifications of the personnel it employs to the production records it keeps.

This course has been designed to provide an essential overview of GMP in the production and manufacture of cosmetics. It will be particularly useful for Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies/personnel considering entering this market and it will also provide an opportunity for those who need to refresh their knowledge about the requirements.

The programme will cover all aspects of the ISO 22716 standard and will include practical application examples.  The critical points to be considered in the cosmetic production process will be addressed and there will be plenty of time to discuss the complexities involved.

This course is part of our Biopharma training courses series which aims to provide up-to-date knowledge on industry best practices and regulations surrounding biopharmaceuticals.
