Time to Re-do the Make-Up of Cosmetic Safety Regulations?
Joan McGuffey – Senior Regulatory Specialist – UL
1:00PM – 1:25PM
Presentation will lead in with a very brief history of FDA oversight of cosmetics; an example of state level activity which exemplifies the need for national action and then a review of the history of proposed legislative changes. Current versus potential requirements of the most recent of these proposed legislative changes will be detailed to provide the audience an understanding of impact upon members of the supply chain and various roles within cosmetic companies. If you are a formulator, manufacturer or packager; domestic or international, the potential changes on the horizon will be considered.
