Reabrook gains Good Manufacturing Practice Accreditation

Reabrook are delighted to announce that they have received accreditation to ISO22716:2007. This certification demonstrates that their 14-acre Reabrook site in Moira near Swadlincote manufactures cosmetics according to the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Certification Standard. Reabrook had to undergo a rigorous assessment and audit process in order to receive the accreditation which required the successful completion of the training programme and an independently witnessed audit to verify competency to the required standard. ISO 22716 provides Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines that underpin the European Union’s Regulation on cosmetics manufacture and allows Reabrook to demonstrate a harmonised approach within the EU.

Reabrook Ltd have attained GMP certification to integrate with the Companies existing ISO9001:2008 and BRC Global Standard for Consumer Products certifications. Certification to ISO 22716 provides compliance to all of the recommendations of the Cosmetics GMP Guidelines through its approach to documentation and regulation of the production, control, storage and shipment of product. It aims to enhance the safety of consumer cosmetic products through the definition of manufacturing good practice across all elements of the supply chain leading to the production of cosmetics to the correct specification.

Joint Managing Director Tony Brealey stated “We have used the ISO22716 Standard to apply GMP to all aspects of Reabrook manufacture; for the cosmetic and non-cosmetic products that Reabrook produce. GMP will cascade fully through the Reabrook manufacturing philosophy with the objective to not only operate to good manufacturing practice but for Reabrook to benefit from cost-effective manufacturing processes and procedures whilst delivering high quality, safe and legal products to all customers regardless of product type”.
