CTPA has launched a new e-learning in its Online Learning Platform 'Cosmetic Ingredients: How to Find Out the Legal Status'. The e-learning is available for free to members of CTPA; non-members of the Association can also access the training (except Module 4 on international regulations) for a payable fee of 150£+VAT.
This new training will give companies a broad knowledge about the requirements that have an impact on cosmetic ingredients and their regulatory status under the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation, the Cosmetics Regulation and the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation. 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.
