Personal care certifications and regulations

Beyond global, regional and local regulations, Croda strives for continuous improvement of its practices by getting official certifications from independent organisations. 

These certifications cover our activities and value chain from sourcing to end-product selling. Some of them are multidisciplinary like the ISO 9001 and 14001 quality standards or the EFfCI GMP quality standard while some others are validating our sustainable approach. 

This strong certification policy is an important aspect of the Croda Group corporate governance as it reflects our intrinsic commitment for continuous improvement. This is also a convincing asset to reassure consumers who are looking for more sustainable, natural and environmentally friendly products.
