Good Manufacturing Practice of cosmetic products (GMPC) is a set of guidelines which help cosmetic manufacturers comply with legal requirements, eet batch uniformity and reduce contamination risks. Cosmetics GMP is mandatory in the EU and highly recommended by many other countries such as the US.
In 1992, FDA issued Cosmetic GMP Guidelines to direct production of cosmetics to ensure its hygiene and safety. To avoid harm to people’s health caused by cosmetics, the EU published Cosmetic Directive 76/768/EEC in July 26, 1976 and its amendment (7th edition) in Feb 27, 2003 to set requirements for cosmetics produced and sold in EU. Factories making cosmetics shall comply with good manufacturing practice, and most importantly ensure the safety and hygiene of the production procedure, and the prevent foreign matters, toxic substances and microorganism from contaminating the products.
