Why should you attend: In the realm of worldwide business practices, Regulatory Affairs has become a growing aspect. Within the past decade, many countries or geographic areas adopted new regulatory frameworks or updated their existing ones. Knowledge of the regulatory frameworks is mandatory for companies with international scope. However, even those enterprises with a more national business interest need to know the basics of the frameworks as they may get responsible due to their customer's activities.
For many of their manufacturers cosmetic products represent a worldwide business and therefore, compliance with the various key provisions is required. In approaching compliance, the fact that the structures for the global frameworks are different needs to be recognized. Difficulties appearing for the compliance seeker include that products may fall under different regulatory definitions, the ingredients may be limited in use whereas the thresholds may be different in the various regulatory zones or sometimes the ingredient may be even prohibited. Some frameworks require pre-market approval of products, sometimes only for certain product categories while others can be marketed under easier market entrance conditions. In many countries, in-market control based on manufacturer's responsibility applies, however, sometimes extensive responsibilities including written product safety assessments, notifications, reporting of adverse reactions, labeling provisions, etc., are required. An actual key issue provides the 'Animal Testing Ban' implemented by the European Union (EU) in March of 2013, which is contradictory to testing requirements in other regulatory zones leaving the question on how to approach compliance under this and other existing regulatory discrepancies.
During the webinar, an overview will be given on the key regulatory provisions for cosmetic products in the major global economies.
