There are many requirements for cosmetic ingredients under different chemicals legislation, in particular: the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation, the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation, and the Cosmetics Regulation. It is extremely important for companies within the cosmetics industry to gain knowledge about these frameworks, why they are relevant to cosmetic ingredients and how they apply.

This e-learning also analyses in detail the Annexes to the EU and UK Cosmetics Regulations, how to read them to ensure that the applicable bans/restrictions/uses are clear and well understood. It is also important for companies to assess whether an ingredient can be used in cosmetic products, taking into account any possible REACH restriction, SVHC or authorisation status.
Furthermore, the training demonstrates how companies can keep track of upcoming regulatory changes that can affect the use of an ingredient, as well as how to plan well in advance to minimise disruptions.
Finally, this e-learning also provides insight on checking and keeping track of regulatory changes for cosmetic ingredients in major international markets.
