This year’s Regulatory Workshop, which is once again organized by CONUSBAT for in-cosmetics will deal with ‘the ever changing regulatory landscape in Europe’. Top industry experts will inject their knowledge, provide opinions & give updates on the EU’s Cosmetics Regulation focusing on regulatory changes.

The topics of this seminar were based on those most requested by participants from the in-cosmetics summer of 2016 survey.

Panel discussions are fully included for Q&A, and we again encourage for active participation by the attendees. Look forward to seeing you there!
