2-day In-person Seminar EU Legislation for Cosmetics: Cosmetic Products Regulation and REACH
The seminar will give an overview of the provisions of both frameworks and will detail the interfaces between as defined and expressed in the legal texts and further official interpretations thereto. The specific provisions of REACH applying to manufacturers of ingredients and those of concern for the manufactures of cosmetic products will be elaborated. Vice versa, the provisions of the CPR with specific concern to the manufactures of cosmetic ingredients will be presented. Special attention will be drawn to the difference in challenges resulting from the legal provisions for importers in relation to manufacturers located within the European Union.
Why you should attend:
The European Union's single market allows products to be moved around the 28 Member States as freely as it happens within one country. This is achieved on the basis of central EU legislation in force for the various industry sectors. In this context, the worldwide manufacturers of cosmetics doing business in Europe have to mainly cope with two European Union's regulatory framework, the Cosmetic Product Regulation (CPR) and the Chemicals Regulation REACH.
Both frameworks are fairly new or newly re-casted pieces of legislation putting in place demanding provisions for those seeking compliance and these as such are facing extensive challenges. Affected are similarly EU and non-EU manufactures worldwide doing business in the world's largest cosmetic market. The situation for non-European manufacturers of both, products and ingredients, is aggravated, due to a sometimes existing distance in legislative culture and most often being in supply chains with partners that are not involved with Europe, etc. Therefore, specific efforts are required from non-EU companies to meet the compliance obligations.
Since the implementation of the animal testing ban in March 2013, new difficulties arose between the phasing out of animal tests as a result from the Cosmetic Products Regulation and meeting the registration requirements of REACH. Manufacturers are finding themselves in an extremely complicated regulatory and scientific environment for meeting the compliance needs. Existing question are surrounding the assurance of the safety for the ingredients and for the cosmetics products in use of consumers.
