We are pleased to be able to launch the CTPA’s 2020 Annual Report with new interactive features of video and direct links to CTPA public and member websites.
CTPA’s strategy to: Facilitate, Protect, Promote and Lead as part of the Association’s mission ‘to be the credible authority for a vibrant and responsible UK industry, trusted to act responsibly for the consumer’ is clearly positioned, together with the topline results of the members’ survey carried out in 2020 and the resultant 2021 workplan.
As the UK emerges from its third lockdown, the feature article ‘From Cope to Hope’ sets out how the CTPA is working with and for members, the wider industry and critical stakeholders to ensure that the cosmetics and personal care industry is seen as essential, innovative, resilient and sustainable.
Please take time to look at these key sections in the Annual Report covering the CTPA’s work over the year, protecting members’ ability to do business and setting out a new roadmap for trade:

The CTPA team has worked remotely since March 2020, with a brief interlude in September, and we are grateful to members for embracing the new virtual world of committee meetings, workshop brainstorms and interactive webinars to ensure that your voice is heard and amplified through the CTPA. The Association is continuing its engagement with key stakeholders and Government departments, in particular BEIS (Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy), OPSS (Office for Product Safety & Standards), Defra (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs), DIT (Department for International Trade), HM Treasury and the Environment Agency.
We are also delighted to report that CTPA has won the Product Safety Award in the 2021 OPSS Regulatory Excellence Awards, which recognise the work of individuals and associations in achieving positive outcomes. See here for further details.
As part of the CTPA’s pro-active social media strategy and active engagement with the media and other industry stakeholders, we are continually seeking ways to promote the essential nature of our industry’s products and their safety profile, and provide consumers with factual information to combat myths and misinformation. We will also be engaging with members’ own social media posts to promote sustainable non-branded actions and to maximise consumer understanding of the industry’s responsible approach to their safety.
