Answers to questions asked at the information day
An information day for manufacturers, importers and distributors of cosmetics in Ireland will be hosted by the IMB on the 15th September 2010, from 9:00 to 14:00. The event will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Northwood Park, Santry Demesne, Dublin 9. A full overview of the event including the programme agenda can be accessed here.
We would like to thank those that have registered for their interest in the event, and we look forward to seeing you on the day. Some final details and clarifications in relation to the day are outlined below.
Aims of the Seminar
The purpose of the information day is to provide an overview of the transfer of the Competent Authority role for cosmetics from the Department of Health and Children to the IMB. The event will also provide an overview of the legislation impacting the cosmetics sector and the IMB's role, and that of other stakeholders involved in market surveillance, including the Health Service Executive (HSE), Department of Health and Children (DoHC) and the National Consumer Agency (NCA). An introduction to the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI), and how standards development impacts the cosmetics regulatory framework, will also be provided.
Attendance is recommended as the event will provide an important update on the transfer of the Competent Authority role for cosmetics as well as discussing the practical aspects of ensuring cosmetic product safety.
Who Should Attend
Given the nature of the information that will be provided, we would anticipate that attendance at the event would be of most benefit to those working in quality, regulatory or compliance related areas.
Attendance will initially be limited to two persons per organisation. Additional places may be allocated thereafter, pending availability.
