Is it that important to ensure the compliance and safety of the Cosmetic products from the consumer’s perspective?

Considering the recent adverse events reported in the Cosmetics world, and the ripples they have created in the Regulatory circles, we believe the answer is yes. Companies must ensure their product is safe for consumers in all aspects. In addition, they should approach for the safety and compliance not only from the Regulatory perspective, but must also make sure they have the strong legal standpoint to defend their products in times of unforeseen contingencies.

Organizations irrespective of the size, big/small/medium, should find better ways to defend their products from the legal perspective. Or to avoid those situations, they must streamline Cosmetic Regulatory activities in a much more effective manner.

Like in earlier times, the job of Regulatory departments, these days, won’t just stop with reviewing formulas and generating ingredient lists, but extends to gaining more intelligence on geo-specific Regulatory legislations. Since each region has its own restrictions and laws on raw material usage while manufacturing cosmetic products; regional labeling requirements to reach out to customers; and various other inflictions to import/export the cosmetic products, the greatest challenge companies could face is to get along with the multi-regional Regulatory requirements.

To safeguard the cosmetic product launch or registration, companies should be well versed with various regulatory forms, complex registration procedures, and filing requirements in respective regions. For instance, let us give you the sheer volume of forms you should require for the Cosmetics Compliance in the US and the EU markets.
