The 9th edition of the Congress "Perfumes & Cosmetics" of Chartres, north-western France, will be held on the 23rd and 24th of November 2011 at the Chartrexpo exhibition centre. Organized by the Cosmetic Valley and Chartres Métropole, the conference dedicated to regulatory issues provides an annual overview and update of the various regulations affecting the perfumes and cosmetics industry. This event is also an opportunity for manufacturers and their representatives to exchange with their regulators.
According to the organizers, about 450 participants and speakers are expected this year again. Among the many companies represented: LVMH Recherche, Chanel, L’Oreal, Aptar, Firmenich, Yves Rocher, L’Occitane ...
The Cosmetic Valley has chosen to put the highlights of the 2011 edition on the implementation of European Regulation that will come into force in July 2013. Issues as diverse as raw materials, safety, effectiveness measurement, cosmetovigilance, alternative methods, interactions between the Regulation and other applicable regulations, obligations of distributors and contractors, will thus be treated.
Among the other topics that are on the program, the state of scientific knowledge about endocrine disruption and the cosmetics regulation in China, should also constitute some of the highlights of the event.
