Cosmetic Regulations

Course Scope

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

An in-depth, interactive course which gives delegates a full overview and understanding of the cosmetics regulations in the EU, and what you need to know to market a product. It covers the requirements under the new European Cosmetics Regulations EC1223/2009, fully implemented in July 2013, with background on what has changed from the old Cosmetics Directive.

Note: There are still aspects of the new Regulations that are undergoing review and the course tutors will endeavour to give the latest industry opinion on the situation.

This 1 day training course takes place in our purpose built training facilities based on the University of Reading campus in Berkshire.  All address details can be found on our website and in your Planning Your Visit pack received once you have booked a place.
