Regulatory affairs service provider CONUSBAT has organized a ‘World-Wide Regulatory’ session at the upcoming in-cosmetics trade show in Paris, in which a group of experts will discuss the regulatory frameworks for cosmetic products around the world.

The session will look at regulations covering products in China, Taiwan, ASEAN, Australia, India, the Americas, the European Union, Russia and South Africa.

The key discussion will be on World Wide Legislation, the similarities and controversies, and will be opened by three presentations on worldwide positions for animal testing, claims and existing harmonization attempts.
