Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating Cosmetic Industry GMP Certification

  • GMP Certification

    Posted by Favour on March 5, 2024 at 9:17 am

    I am currently working at a small cosmetic lab and will eventually start training the employees. I have taken a cosmetic formulation diploma course and has already been trained in most areas, even GMP, but I’m wanting to know if there is a course out there that I can take to be certified or have the necessary credentials for GMP training?

    Why become certified? Is it necessary?

    In my factories, I designed the GMP SoPs that were approved by the regulatory authorities in various countries, and then I designed and set up two of our factories and in-house laboratories required by GMP.

    Next, I hired a graduate and made her the QA Manager and I gave her the necessary training, then basically threw her into the deep end. She learnt, very quickly, on the job. And within the first month, she fronted a GMP inspection from the regulatory authority. There were a few issues raised, and with my assistance, she sorted these out.

    My point here is that you will never get any better course than “on-the-job training.”

    Wow! wish I worked for you as to get the training but the company I work at is a very small cosmetic lab and they aren’t GMP certified and would like for me to take the necessary courses to be certified so that I can train the staff and carry out other functions that are QC/QA related.
