Good Manufacturing Practice in the scope of EU Cosmetic Regulations
Meeting your Obligations
The Cosmetic Legislation EU 1223/2009 requires producers of cosmetics to work to Good Manufacturing Practice. There is no specified standard that is required to be worked to and so there are a few to choose from.
This course covers the requirements of ISO 22716 which is an accepted GMP standard throughout the world.
ISO (International Organization for Standardisation) create standards for most industries across the world including manufacturing, safety, science and management quality. Their standards are used worldwide in areas such as car seats (ISOFIX is an ISO standard).
Who is this Course for
Anyone who wishes to produce or sell cosmetics within the EU must work to Good Manufacturing Practices, and this course is aimed at those individual/businesses. These standards apply to anyone from a warehouse environment to working from the kitchen at home. This is taken into account when teaching the course, to apply all parts to both big and small scale production. We have attendees from both ends of the scale, all of which have enjoyed this course and learned what is necessary for their particular circumstances.
The main areas covered by ISO 22716 are:
- Materials – Packaging and Raw
- Quality Control
- Change control
We will cover each section in detail and look at what is required under the guidelines.
The GMP is a very educational course, however it can be more than that, especially for small producers or individuals just starting out. Feedback from the course shows that the guidelines create a framework that makes manufacturers think more deeply and in more detail about how their processes affect their final product. We discuss ideas such as waste that a new producer may never have considered – where is your bin located in your production area? How does this affect the product? Does it cause necessary risk of contamination?
Topics such as change control are a new concept to many, but it is important not only to the production of your product but your overall business. We talk about this in some detail, to allow attendees to understand the importance of running a business differently to other areas of your life.
Much of GMP is logical processes that even a new producer with no experience would go through; cleaning your premises, cleaning your equipment, washing your hands etc. etc. However it is important that these are consistently done, and that the correct records are held to allow an outsider to understand the processes used.
During the day there is time to talk about each section and its practical application. We apply the guidelines to both small and large scale production. We have experience of applying the guidelines at both levels, and of inspections by local authorities which we can pass onto attendees.
Please note we start on time each day, if you are late you will miss that part of the course.
