- Past history and pattern of Regulatory approvals, re-calls and rejections for respective products, to the Health Authority / Market to which approval is being solicited
- The appropriate Regulatory pathway when regional complexities are present (e.g.: EU – National Procedure, De Centralized Procedure-DCP, Mutually Recognized Procedure-MRP )
- Appropriate Submission format approach
- Ongoing tracking of Ingredient-level / Safety & Scientific information services to help in better product / formulations strategy from a Regulatory perspective
- Monitor changing legislation as it relates to Toxicology, Regulatory, Environmental, etc.
- Evaluate Regulatory impact to products for safety (i.e., Cosmetic Ingredient Review – CIR, EU Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety – SCCS, etc.), constituent regulated limits, (i.e., OTC monograph, EU Cosmetic Directives, China regulatory reform), etc.
- Verification of Trade Name, Manufacturer, INCI(s), CAS/EINECS #, and percentage or constituent
- Evaluate potential impact on new guideline or restriction and/or reporting/documentation requirements
