Cosmetics organisations to comply with ISO Standards

The introduction of ISO 22716 pioneers a globally recognised quality and safety standard for cosmetic products. An increasing number of cosmetics organisations are implementing ISO 22716 to support their compliance with the new European cosmetics regulations which are due to come into effect in July 2013.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published ISO 22716 to deal with all aspects of the supply chain of cosmetic products, from the early delivery of raw materials and components until the shipment of the final product to the consumer.

As a business improvement tool ISO 22716 is complimentary to ISO 9001 and can be used as a vehicle to drive continuous improvement.

The guidelines provide cosmetics organisations with a framework to manage the key aspects of business operations including human, technical, and administrative that affect the quality and safety of products.
