2023 has been a dynamic year for the global cosmetic industry, marked by significant strides in regulatory advancements and enforcement. Governments and international organizations have implemented new policies and regulations aimed at enhancing the safety, quality, and transparency of cosmetic products. The developments include the introduction of the cosmetic overarching regulation, revisions to pre-market and post-market supervision regulations, and updates to ingredient use requirements. As a result, businesses operating within the global cosmetic market have encountered evolving compliance challenges and opportunities.

In the United States, the industry experienced a groundbreaking shift with the release of the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA), accompanied by a series of supporting rules. This marks the first substantial overhaul of the U.S. cosmetic regulatory framework since 1938. Meanwhile, the European Union made crucial amendments to ingredient lists in Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009. Both the UK and Canada have also undergone noteworthy regulatory updates.

To help businesses stay informed and navigate the dynamic regulatory landscape, ChemLinked is thrilled to present the “2023 Cosmetic Recap” webinar series, which includes three individual webinars. You can acquire all three webinars at a packaged price of $399.
