In order to ensure the quality of cosmetics through the manufacturing source, the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) for cosmetics will officially be implemented on July 1, 2024. All cosmetics manufacturing sites will implement cosmetics GMP in three phases. The manufacturing sites for sunscreens, hair dyes, perm products, antiperspirants, deodorants, and home-use teeth whitening products containing peroxide will be the first group required to comply with the GMP requirements starting from July 1st of this year. The Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) will simultaneously initiate on-site inspections to verify their compliance with GMP.

  The GMP requirements for cosmetics in Taiwan are based on the international standard ISO 22716 to align with global standards. Furthermore, the manufacturing sites for baby, lip, eye, non-medicinal toothpaste, and mouthwash cosmetics are required to comply with cosmetics GMP on July 1, 2025. And all cosmetic manufacturing sites must fully comply with GMP since July 1st of 2025 to provide safe and high-quality cosmetic products to the public.
