The yearly event brings together the leading figures in cosmetics regulation to present the recent issues faced worldwide for legislation compliance
The Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit brings together the leading figures in regulatory compliance for the cosmetics, personal care and fragrance industries. The two-day annual meet provides an opportunity for different areas of these industries to share and discuss their views and opinions about regulation and compliance in order to maximise best practice for the future.
The meeting also provides a platform for debate between various parties within cosmetics to discuss how the industry can change and/or hone current practices to ensure that the future of regulation continues to bring practicality, feasibility and relevancy closer to its core in order to disperse the apathy and resentment that is often felt towards regulation compliance.
