European Commission Cosmetics Industry Regulation

Regulation No. Regulation 1223/2009 on cosmetic products is the main regulatory framework for finished cosmetic products placed on the EU market. This enhances the safety of cosmetic products and simplifies the system for all operators in the sector. The Regulation simplifies procedures to the extent that the internal market for cosmetic products is now a reality.
This Regulation replaces Directive 76/768 / EC, which was adopted in 1976. And there have been several major revisions. It provides a robust, internationally recognized regime that enhances product safety in light of recent technological developments, including the possible use of nanomaterials. Previous animal insurance prohibition rules have not been changed.

The Cosmetics and Consumer Health Committee (CD-P-COS) is developing standards and strategies to improve consumer health protection in the field of cosmetics.

Non-European observers and the European Pharmacopoeia Commission may also participate in the network.
This committee is currently working to ensure the participation of national OCCLs in the pan-European network and is further expanding its database of test results for childcare and cosmetics. It also works in tattoo safety, offering safety recommendations.

International Fragrance Association (IFRA)

The International Fragrance Association brings together fragrance ingredient manufacturers and manufacturers to represent their collective interests and promote the safe use and enjoyment of fragrances worldwide.
In addition to its traditional defense association role, working with regulators and policymakers to help create a fair, stable and sustainable legal environment, IFRA also plays a self-regulatory role through its code of practice and IFRA standards.
However, IFRA also plays a broader role: first, to provide services and general facilities to its members; second, engage in a public dialogue to better understand the benefits of the perfume and fragrance industry.
