Global Cosmetics Compliance: Mapping Global Activity and Challenges

The rates of outsourcing safety testing and other crucial studies for cosmetics products are on the increase. Additionally, as import requirements and global regulations become more stringent, the industry is looking to expert labs to guide them through to the ultimate goal of successful distribution.

In the run up to the Global Cosmetic Compliance Summit this May in Amsterdam, Pharma IQ conducted an unprecedented industry wide survey. In fact, 36% of cosmetics companies are increasing investment in safety testing over the next 12 months. Pharma IQ speaks to Brian Ecclefield, International Sales at AMA Laboratories, Inc. about the impact of recent industry changes, the value of a varied testing approach and much more.
