Après la mise en place du règlement CLP CE N°1272/2008 (Classification, Labelling and Packaging), l’harmonisation au niveau Européen des déclarations aux centres anti poison est un sujet incontournable. Actuellement les déclarations se font dans chaque pays de mise sur le marché où les règles divergent d’un pays à l’autre.

A partir du 1er Janvier 2020, tous les produits classés comme dangereux pour la santé ou présentant un danger physique seront à déclarer. Les déclarations seront à faire selon un format harmonisé via le Poison Centres Notification (PCN) portal. De nouveaux éléments entrent également en application, l’UFI (Unique Formula Identifier) et EuPCS (European product categorisation system).

Quelles sont ces nouvelles exigences ? Comment vous y préparer ? Nos experts vous proposent un point à date des exigences en France et de la mise en place au niveau Européen des déclarations aux centres anti poison. Ce webinar s’adresse aux importateurs et aux utilisateurs en aval qui mettent sur le marché des produits chimiques soumis au règlement CLP et aux Fiches de données de sécurité (FDS), par exemple : Parfums d’ambiance, bougies, aérosols, peintures, colles, encres, détergents, matières premières…

Oral care personal care products which are classed as cosmetics in certain global regions such as Europe benefit from in vitro testing to help accelerate product development and support marketing claims. Novel oral care products need to be safe for use by consumers and must also perform well and whilst in vivo clinical studies for oral care products are the gold standard in terms of product assessment, these can be rather complex, time-consuming and expensive. Instead, a well-designed in vitro test can often yield the required data much more quickly and at a lower cost.

In this webinar session our expert, Pete Hall, will introduce in vitro study approaches for oral care products and illustrate with several case studies how such studies – whether they are to support early-stage development of a product formulation or in support of marketing claims or pack claims - may accelerate product development.

Cosmetic products that have medicinal or drug-like benefits, otherwise known as cosmeceuticals, must be substantiated for safety before going to market, which involves analytical chemical analysis to verify active ingredient content and the absence of hazardous materials. Cosmetic companies know that consumer safety is the number one priority, so they invest resources in scientific research and testing to ensure their products are safe and compliant with the laws and regulations and they can also support their all-natural claims.

This webinar focuses on the types of chemical analysis performed and methods used to identify the presence and quantity of active ingredients, additives or harmful materials in cosmeceuticals and all-natural products. We will also discuss the importance of why manufacturers, suppliers and retailers should understand what is in their cosmetic products to mitigate sources of risk across the supply chain.
