Concerning: Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations for Cosmetics

Whereas, the FDA has not adopted rules covering Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) for cosmetics, and

Whereas, the International Standards Organization (ISO) has adopted model cosmetic GMP’s for adoption by the global regulatory community, and

Whereas, AFDO believes the adoption of broadly accepted GMP standards will greatly enhance the safety of cosmetics, and

Whereas, the adoption of internationally accepted standards will also promote international trade by assuring that US cosmetics are the safest in the world, therefore be it

Resolved, that AFDO endorse the adoption of ISO 22716: 2007 Cosmetics – Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) — Guidelines on Good Manufacturing Practices by the Food and Drug Administration as regulations to be followed by domestic and imported cosmetic manufacturers and importers.
