Implementation in Cosmetics Products - 2017

No tickets available


Since July 2013, Regulation (EC)
No 1223/2009 on Cosmetic Products of the EU has been fully implemented and
represents a modern regulatory framework grounded on state of the art of
cosmetic science and product technology. It is structured in regulatory
modules, which include the safety assessment and the Cosmetic Product Safety
Report (CPSR), Product Information File (PIF), Responsible Person (RP), label
information, cosmetovigilance, substance regulations, claims, etc. The
legislator's existing goal is assurance of the safety for the ingredients and
for the cosmetics products in use of consumers. In-market control is assigned
to EU Member State competent authorities. The flow of information between
countries is interlinked by the Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP),
which is fed with the information by the demand for pre-market notification of
cosmetic products and by ongoing cosmetovigilance procedures put in place with
the respective provisions in the CPR. The central role in cosmetovigilance
applies to the Responsible Person while the access to manufacturers and
responsible persons is assured by product labeling provisions.

During the workshop the
provisions depicted as regulatory modules will be presented and explained with
including the latest developments and research results. On the basis of the
knowledge gained from this introduction, alleys towards compliance will be
depicted, which will use practical examples and experiences made upon
performing the necessary compliance steps before and while marketing of
cosmetics products in the EU.

Why should you attend:

The European Union's (EU) Cosmetics Products Regulation
(CPR) 1223/2009 represents a newly re-casted piece of legislation, fully
implemented since July 2013, and putting in place demanding provisions for
those seeking compliance. Affected by the challenges of meeting compliance are
the players in the world's biggest cosmetic market, the EU's internal market,
as such similarly EU and non-EU manufactures of cosmetics as well as the
suppliers of cosmetic ingredients requested to provide data on their chemicals.

Provisions of the CPR are formulated as modules and
these include substance regulations, product information file, labeling,
cosmetovigilance, claims, notification, responsible person, etc. Compliance
with these modules requires know-how, diligence and ongoing adjustment to state
of the art of knowledge and documentation. In this format, the EU Regulation
represents not only the entry requirements for marketing of cosmetic product in
the European Union; however, it represents as well a model framework for many
national legislators worldwide. These legislators often either adopt certain of
the modules or the structure of the Regulation in full, respectively of its
predecessor legislation, the Cosmetics Directive. Therefore, skills to comply
with the EU's CPR support and supply a background for attempting compliance
with other regulatory frameworks.

The seemingly hardest module of the CPR is the safety
assessment, requiring extensive skills in various science areas, such as
toxicology, chemistry, cosmetology, microbiology, etc., as well as the
knowledge in regulatory affairs and compliance management. Further difficulties
with the EU's legal provisions arose from the final implementation of the
animal testing ban in March 2013. In consequence, sometimes contradictory
requirements arise from different sector legislation or from the requests in
various legislative areas worldwide prior to marketing. Additionally, validated
alternative tests are not available for all toxicological endpoints required to
be assessed within the safety assessment and the Cosmetic Product Safety
Report. Therefore, manufacturers are placed in an extremely complicated
regulatory and scientific environment for meeting the compliance needs in
general and especially for introducing new ingredients.

Now four years after the regulation's implementation,
this 2-day seminar intends to tackle & address the issues at hand. Special
attention will be given to areas where issues existed at time of implementation
and where considerable progress was made.
