Cosmetic GMP certification for Evonik’s Americana site in Brazil means that all twelve Evonik sites that produce products for the Personal Care Business Line now meet ISO 22716 standards. Certification guarantees that Evonik is in compliance with all mandatory quality assurance requirements for manufacturing, monitoring, storing, and distributing raw materials for the cosmetics industry.
The company’s European sites, which had been certified as meeting GMP requirements for cosmetics back in 2012, were recertified for the first time at the end of fall 2015. Evonik’s North American and Asian production facilities for cosmetic ingredients were confirmed as GMP compliant in 2013 and 2014.
"We can now demonstrate that all of our sites throughout the world work according to uniform standards and at the same level of quality," says Dr. Tammo Boinowitz, head of Evonik’s Personal Care Business Line.
In addition, an integrated quality and environmental management system has also been established at all sites and certified as ISO 9001 and 14001 compliant. "That’s yet another way that we meet the high standards of our global customers," Boinowitz points out.
