The two giants in EU Cosmetics Regulation compliance will be presenting at the global cosmetics regulatory summit in 16 days\' time
Cosmetics Europe and the European Commission will both be providing keynote speeches at the annual Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit held this year on the 17-18 June at the Radisson Royal Blu hotel in central Brussels.
Cosmetics Europe - The Personal Care Association, has been the voice of Europe’s €70 billion (excluding exports) cosmetic, toiletry and perfumery industry since 1962. Florian Schellauf, Issue Manager of Technical Regulatory Affairs, will look at the future of cosmetics regulation, presenting the ideas on behalf of Cosmetics Europe regarding the interpretation of regulation and how this would impact compliance.
The European Commission (EC) represents the interests of the EU as a whole proposing new legislation to the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. It also ensures that EU law is correctly applied by member countries. On 11 July 2013 the new EU Regulation 1223/2009 (as inforced by the EC) came into force strengthening the safety of cosmetic products and streamlining the framework for all operators in the sector. The Regulation simplifies procedures to the extent that the internal market of cosmetic products is now a reality. The Cosmetics Regulation, adopted in 2009, replaced Directive 76/768/EC that was adopted in 1976 and provides a robust, internationally recognised regime, which reinforces product safety taking into consideration the latest technological developments.
Roman Mokry, Policy Officer at the European Commission, will provide an overview on "Cosmetic product claims: European regulatory framework and common criteria".
The Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit sees the leading figures in the regulatory field of cosmetics present the recent issues faced worldwide for legislation compliance as it functions in reality. The summit looks to address how regulation affects the industry on a global scale and provides a platform for debate between various parties within cosmetics. The discussions that occur over the two day event will help to ensure that the future of regulation continues to bring practicality, feasibility and relevancy closer to its core.
