Certification in the chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical sectors

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The chemical industry transforms raw materials into a large variety of chemical products in order to meet the requirements of other industries and as well as direct consumers.

The aim of these transformation processes is to obtain high quality products whilst causing the least amount of damage to the environment. Standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are the benchmark for chemical industry management systems.

As the industry involves a broad spectrum of products (fuels, detergents, cosmetics, medications, etc.), there is a need to develop specific certification schemes for each type of industry. 

A special mention should be given to the cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors, both in constant evolution, where products are facing global consumer demand, with worldwide competitiveness that creates a need to meet increasingly strict international quality requirements.
