Good Manufacturing Practice certification for cosmetic products

Find out how you can apply for a Good Manufacturing Practice certificate for cosmetic products manufactured in Singapore.

Good Manufacturing Practice certification

Cosmetic product manufacturers in Singapore do not require a manufacturer’s licence. However, the manufacturer may apply for a voluntary Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certificate to facilitate the export of the cosmetic products.

After receiving your application, we will arrange to conduct a GMP certification audit in accordance with the GMP Guidelines for Manufacturers of Cosmetic Products242 KB, which encompasses all the recommendations of the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive in relation to GMP. A site master file should be prepared in accordance with the  Guide for Preparation of a Site Master File for a Manufacturer of Cosmetic Products235 KB and submitted before the GMP certification audit.

The GMP certificate will be granted when you are deemed to have complied with the above mentioned GMP standard.
