Event Description

This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of FDA regulations for cosmetic products. It will help you understand how to be compliant in manufacturing, labeling and advertising of cosmetic products, and thereby ensure successful FDA and state inspections.

Why Should You Attend:

Being unaware of the regulations that apply to the cosmetics industry is a tenuous position to be in. Should your products come under scrutiny, will you be able to pass FDA and state inspections or will your business be in jeopardy?

This presentation will help the management and staff of cosmetics companies to understand the regulations and how they apply to their products. It will help attendees gain a strong understanding of what is involved in becoming compliant in manufacturing, labeling and advertising of cosmetic products. Attendees will learn the importance of documenting and following up on consumer complaints, the marketing errors to avoid, the value of tracking lots, maintaining retention samples, having a quarantine area and its purpose, the necessity in using good manufacturing practices (GMP) in the manufacturing of cosmetics and the possibility of needing a quality testing program.

Whether you are a contract manufacturer or make your own products, compliance with GMPs will ensure quality production, and minimize corporate risk. Safeguarding consumer health is a key priority. Compliance will also ensure successful FDA and state inspections. This session will include the key principles of GMP as defined by FDA as well as incorporate FDA regulatory inspection strategy to identify areas of common deficiency.
