PCC Consumer Products Kosmet Sp. z o.o., the Lower Silesian manufacturer of household chemicals, has introduced the EU standard of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
According to the Regulation of the European Parliament, all manufacturers, importers and distributors of cosmetic products are obliged to place cosmetic products, manufactured in line with GMP, Good manufacturing Practice, on the EU market.
The Regulation ensures the implementation of uniform legal requirements for cosmetics in the whole European Union.
Primarily, GMP guarantees high quality of cosmetic products and a higher lever of consumer confidence.
GMP is a system covering the production, quality control and storage of cosmetic products in accordance with the established quality requirements. The guidelines of Good Manufacturing Practice are provided by the quality system based on ISO 22716. The system of GMP identifies the areas of the company that require supervision, concern production, quality control, hygiene of production, storage and transportation of cosmetic products. One of the requirements of the GMP system is the principle of batch management and implementation of identification code, or batch number. Finished products must be checked for quality with relevant test methods before they are marketed. GMP also formulates the detailed requirements for the staff, who should have appropriate knowledge and skills.
The standards of Good Manufacturing Practice guarantee the high quality and purity of materials used in manufacturing of the product. They also indicate how to act rationally and use the natural environment in a balanced way.
“We are facing ever greater challenges related to product quality posed by the dynamically developing market. The expectations and needs of consumers are growing, and they are of highest importance to us,” says Andrzej Przychodny, President of PCC Consumer Products Kosmet Sp. z o.o.
Due to strong market competition, both attracting new customers and keeping those most loyal to a given brand requires not only high expenditure on technological development and marketing activities from the manufacturers, but also ensures the highest quality at every stage of the production process.
“We operate according to the latest management systems in design, production and sales,” says Andrzej Przychodny.
