22716 Gmp – Good Manufacturing Practices
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), are a series of protective measures aimed towards manufacturing, under reliable conditions and systems, of products that directly affect human health, such as food, medicine, cosmetics and medical devices; and towards preventing potential contamination throughout the entire manufacturing process, from preparation to distribution, and increasing reliability. As per the Cosmetics Regulation enacted by EU in 2010, all cosmetics producers are required to conform to good manufacturing practices for cosmetics. In accordance with the practice that is about to be put in effect in Turkey, GMP certificate will be required for products imported to Turkey as well as products exported.
