Safety for consumers is a requirement for cosmetic manufacturers all over the world. However, the legal requirements differ. For the first time, the principle of safety assessment of cosmetic products was anchored in the European Cosmetics legislation with the Directive 93/35/EEC (6th Amendment to the EC Cosmetics Directive 76/768/EEC). Before marketing a product, manufacturers and distributors of cosmetic products are required to subject every product to a comprehensive assessment of its safety for human health.
This legal requirement of the EU serves as a model for many other regions now and there, too, safety assessment is required by law. Even in countries where safety assessment is not legally required, manufacturers want to make sure to bring safe products to market for the consumers. These manufacturers often use the requirements of the EU, although the comprehensive documentation does not necessarily have to be carried out.
The training for safety assessors developed by IKW and DGK is of interest for safety assessors all over the world. The combination of web trainings offered by DGK/IKW in combination with seminars at local level - also to allow the practical exchange - is very much appreciated. Therefore, IKW and DGK cooperate with scientific and trade associations all over the world to offer local seminars for the training of safety assessors, also along with trade fairs like HPCI, the NYSCC Suppliers' Day or China Beauty Expo.
