Evonik achieves cosmetic GMP (ISO 22716) confirmation for North American sites
With the confirmation of another three facilities in Hopewell, Janesville and Mapleton Evonik raises the number of cosmetic GMP certified production sites to ten. ISO 22716 refers to the manufacturing process of cosmetics as well as raw materials. It includes guidelines for quality-related aspects of a product.
This confirmation guarantees that Evonik focuses on the appropriate principles and methods during production, controlling, storage and distribution. In addition to the European facilities, which received accreditation in 2012, also the production sites in NAFTA fulfill the guidelines of GMP now.
"The acknowledgement for our American and European production sites shows that we are able to fulfill the high demands of our customers in the cosmetic industry concerning the product quality during production and storage. Therefore, we can raise the customer satisfaction.
Due to the fact that we are aiming to realize these quality demands globally we are planning a promptly inclusion of our Asian sites for this standard", outlines Klaus Nawroth, Quality Management and Compliance Evonik Personal Care.
Thus, customers of Evonik can rely on the standard of GMP during the whole manufacturing process.
