EFfCI GMP Certification - Demonstrable compliance with good manufacturing practice for cosmetic raw materials
The core of EFfCI GMP certification is compliance with good manufacturing practice (GHP) in the production of raw materials for cosmetic products. The standard covers both the quality of the raw materials used and the safety and quality of the manufacturing processes.
The EFfCI GMP Standard was first published in 2005. It is now available in its fourth version, which is based on ISO 9001.

Who is the EFfCI?
What is the EFfCI GMP certification process?
In the first step, you discuss your company, your personal goals and the objectives of an EFfCI GMP certification with us. Based on these discussions, you will receive an individual offer tailored to the needs of your company or organization.
These steps prepare the actual audit. Project planning can be useful for larger projects, for example, to plan schedules and the performance of audits for individual locations or departments. The pre-audit gives you the opportunity to identify strengths and areas for improvement in your system in advance.
The certification audit starts with an analysis of your system. This enables your DQS auditor to determine whether your management system is ready for certification. In the next step, your DQS auditor assesses the effectiveness of the management processes on site. The results are presented in a final meeting. If necessary, action plans are agreed upon.
The audit results are evaluated by the independent certification board of DQS. If all requirements of the EFfCI GMP standard are met, you will receive an internationally recognized DQS certificate with a validity period of three years.
To maintain the EFfCI GMP certificate, key components of your system are audited annually on site. This ensures the continuous improvement and ongoing effectiveness of your system.
The EFfCI GMP certificate expires after three years at the latest. A recertification is carried out in good time before expiry to ensure continued compliance with the requirements. Upon compliance, a new certificate is issued.
