Cosmetic Regulations

8 December 2016, Reading, United Kingdom

Course Scope

The in-depth, interactive course which gives delegate a full overview and understanding of the EU Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009, and what you need to know to market a product. This regulation was fully implemented in July 2013 and makes many changes to the previous Cosmetics Directive 76/786/EEC. These changes include aspects of the Product Information File, notification, labelling, claim substantiation and also include a greater emphasis on Good Manufacturing Practice and compliance with a harmonised standard such as ISO22716. There are a number of aspects of the Regulation that are under review and the course tutors will endeavour to give the latest industry opinion where appropriate.

At the end of the course you will:
•Understand 'borderline' products, the definition of a cosmetic and how to differentiate cosmetics from medicinal and biocidal products
•Fully appreciate the legislation and guidelines involving cosmetics products (including ISO 22716)
•Be able to check if and how ingredients are regulated
•Have an awareness of product information file requirements
•Understand claim substantiation and product labelling
•Know how compliance can be enforced

The course includes a range of exercises and practical activities to demonstrate topics and test delegates' knowledge. This will enable you to take the information you learn on the course back into the workplace.

Who should attend:

Anyone involved in the development, manufacture and sale of cosmetic products will find this course beneficial.
