GLOBAL QUALITY ASSURANCE SYSTEM
The first in Japan to receive EFfCI GMP certification!
In February 2013, we became the first Japanese company certified for EFfCI GMP, for cosmetic ingredients in Europe.
In addition, in December 2013, we were examined for maintenance of EFfCI GMP and ISO 9001:2008 and judged to satisfy requirements for both certifications.
EFfCI allows us to construct an even better quality control system that responds to hygiene control items not covered by ISO 9001-2008. We will keep working to achieve the best quality management system to ensure we provide our customers with the best quality products.
What is EFfCI GMP?
EFfCI GMP is the GMP* specialized in cosmetic raw materials formulated by the European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients (EFfCI). The formulation process referred to as GMP is the guideline for pharmaceutical excipients prepared by the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council and the Pharmaceutical Quality Group (IPEC-POG) and is also the framework of ISO 9001:2008. It is known as a strict standard, including requirements that the ISO does not cover as GMP requirements.
*Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) means rules and a system that are established to ensure the safe manufacturing of products and maintenance of constant quality in all processes from warehousing of raw materials, manufacturing to shipping.
