Mexico Issues New NOM for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Regarding Cosmetic Products.

The new NOM for good manufacturing practices (GMP) regarding cosmetic products was published in the Official Federal Gazette on July 5th, 2022. The NOM establishes several requirements that companies must meet when it comes to production and importation of cosmetic products, to guarantee the product´s quality, safety, as well as efficacy.

Firstly, the NOM provides the hygiene requirements relating to the working staff, the sanitary conditions of the facilities, equipment usage, inspection, and reception of raw- and packaging materials, as well as for production operations, transportation, and quality control. The standard furthermore establishes that companies are required to record and document the compliance of the NOM, which must be made available to the health authorities when requested.

Also, the NOM requires companies to have a procedure for dealing with complaints and returns. Such inquires must be investigated, similarly to pharmacovigilance or technovigilance actions, especially those related to toxic or allergenic aspects of the product, for the company to provide the appropriate follow-up.

The NOM itself enters into force on September 2nd, 2022, however, the requirement to document compliance enters into force December 31st, 2022, and the requirements relating to the adequacy of facilities enters into force from March 1st, 2023.

The Secretary of Health and the federal entities oversees the compliance with the standard.
