Evonik's Americana site in Brazil just received Cosmetic GMP certification, meaning all twelve Evonik sites producing products for the personal care business line now meet ISO 22716 standards. This certification guarantees Evonik's 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 were certified in 2012, were recertified for the first time this fall. Evonik's North American and Asian production facilities for cosmetic ingredients were confirmed GMP-compliant in 2013 and 2014.
In addition to the certification, an integrated quality and environmental management system has been established at all sites and certified as ISO 9001- and 14001-compliant.
