"Get GMP
 Get what you want"
Cosmetic manufacture is a conditional business line.
The Government has issued Decree 93/2016/ND-CP, effective from July 1, 2016, stipulating the conditions for manufacture of cosmetic products.
A cosmetic product can be legally announced and circulated only if it was produced at a facility with Certificate of eligibility for cosmetic manufacturing conditions. 
A facility that is eligible for cosmetic manufacturing conditions (minimum conditions), does not mean it can be granted CGMP ASEAN certification (higher requirements). However, a facility with CGMP ASEAN certification (issued by Ministry of Health) is obviously eligible for cosmetic manufacturing conditions.
CGMP ASEAN is "Good manufacturing practices for cosmetics" guidelines that was recognized by 10 member countries of ASEAN. With this certification, the cosmetic products can be annouced and circulated legally in ASEAN countries.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)?

When are cosmetic facilities required to achieve CGMP ASEAN certification issued by the Ministry of Health?
At this time, we don't have exact answer for your question. However, Ministry of Health tends to manage the cosmetic production more and more tightly. In fact, when evaluation of eligibility for cosmetic manufacturing conditions, the local departments of Health are demanding higher requirements, more closer to CGMP ASEAN requirements.
In Vietnam, Which department/agencies issue CGMP ASEAN certificate?
In Vietnam, the Drug Administration of Vietnam - Ministry of Health is the only agency responsible for reviewing dossiers, inspection and issuing CGMP ASEAN certificates for establishments that in compliance with CGMP ASEAN principles according to the provisions of Circular 06/2011/TT-BYT.
Is there the same rigorous level in audit procedure of the eligibility for cosmetic manufacturing conditions between local departments of Health?
In fact, there is no common scale/requirements between local departments of Health to evaluate and issue the certification of eligibility for cosmetic manufacturing conditions. The Hanoi and HCMC department of Health have more strict requirements and increasingly though project by project.
Some Non-governmental Organizations (usually issue ISO certificates) state that they can also issue CGMP ASEAN certificate. Should this certificate be done with them?
Some NGOs have done and been issuing ASEAN CGMP certificate, but they are not recognized. In fact, their assessment procedure is sloppy, lack of basis, and somewhat is "commercial". We recommend that customers should apply for CGMP ASEAN certificate via Ministry of Health to receive real value in investmrnt and operation.
