Product Description

Get up to Speed with the latest FDA Regulations to Import, Label and Market Cosmetics in the U.S.

Companies often struggle or hesitate to import cosmetics into the United States. Foreign cosmetics that appear to be adulterated or misbranded are denied entry – and must be brought into compliance, re-exported or destroyed. But you can avoid this problem if you know the key FDA regulations for importing and marketing cosmetics in the United States.

In this in-depth webinar, industry veteran Norma Skolnik will bring you up to speed with the FDA regulations for cosmetics – including cosmetic labeling and other key requirements to import cosmetics into the U.S. She will show you how to avoid potential regulatory problems and delays, and also provide expert insights on basic marketing and claims requirements for U.S. cosmetic products.

You will learn the basics of cosmetic labeling regulations, and know how to avoid delays, entry denials, and costly product relabeling. You will learn from examples how and why cosmetic products have been denied entry and/or issued warning letters by the FDA, and how you can avoid getting into such situations.

After attending this webinar, you will be confident in your ability to import cosmetics in compliance with FDA regulations – and avoid product detainments.
