Intertek to Present at the Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit

September 28, 2017

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will be presenting at the Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit taking place in Barcelona, Spain from October 17-18, 2017.

The Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit will bring together industry experts to discuss hot topics pertaining to innovation and compliance.  The goal of this event is to provide attendees with valuable knowledge to improve product development strategies and ensure regulatory compliance in the most efficient and cost-effective way

Meeting requirements in global markets makes regulatory compliance an increasingly difficult issue for companies. Intertek Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services (HERS) expert, Nicholas Jermstad, Manager, Toxicology and Environmental Assessments states, "In the cosmetics industry, many companies are entering an uncharted regulatory environment with little to no knowledge about local compliance issues.  It is vital to understand the key business risks and challenges that you may be faced with from a regulatory perspective".

Intertek provides a comprehensive range of services for beauty and personal care products to ensure quality, safety, efficacy and regulatory compliance. In October, Nicholas Jermstad will share his expertise as he presents, "US and Canada: Reach a Quarter of the Global Cosmetics Market."  Attendees will be provided insight into how to unravel the complexities of entering these significant but highly regulated markets, including coverage of legislations on labels, ingredients, and claims.  Mr. Jermstad will also discuss how the recent Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), between the EU and Canada, will apply to cosmetic brand owners and manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic.
