ICMAD’s Cosmetic Technical Regulatory Forum is an event that provides attendees with necessary and relevant information on current regulatory and legislative news.

Topics covered within this two-day event will be: Changes in federal and state landscape; How ICMAD is helping to shape the legislation; Update on California's Green Chemistry initiative; How to enter foreign markets with specific examples; Determining what your customers are looking for; How product claims are fueling consumer lawsuits in California; and and update on FDA and FTC activities.
