American Conference Institute (ACI) in collaboration with Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors is pleased to present ACI’s 4th annual Legal, Regulatory, and Compliance Forum on Cosmetics and Personal Care Products. ACI is honored that Pamela Jo Busiek, President and CEO of Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD) and Sharon Blinkoff, Counsel, Locke Lord LLP and Secretary & General Counsel of ICMAD have agreed to co-chair this year’s event.   The industry is entering a new and defining phase shaped by the backdrop of important legislative developments. Due to recent news stories on cosmetics and personal care products safety, there has been a huge push for tighter industry regulation. Congress is now entertaining two bills – each quite different in scope—and each supported by different industry factions – which are designed to give FDA further authority to regulate the cosmetics and personal care products industry.   Explore these bills and more at this “must-attend” event for the legal, regulatory, and compliance stakeholders of the cosmetics and personal care industries. This forum will not only provide “state of the union updates”, but also allow for the opportunity to discuss and assess the politics and policy shaping the industry’s current atmosphere. Our distinguished faculty will provide you with the critical information that you need to:  
  • Determine when a cosmetic product must also meet the FDA requirements for OTC drugs
  • Understand what the FTC looks for in claim substantiation to avoid unnecessary push back
  • Clarify what retailers concerns and increase your potential to obtain purchase order
  • Examine new and changing international regulations to avoid trade complications
  • Comprehend FDA’s jurisdiction over social media
  Register today for the industry’s premier and most comprehensive legal and regulatory forum on cosmetic products by calling 888-224-2480 or visiting online.
