Conference Institute Joins with ICMAD

ICMAD is collaborating with the American Conference Institute (ACI) to present the 3rd Annual Legal, Regulatory, and Compliance Forum on Cosmetics and Personal Care Products, March 7-9, 2016, at The Carlton Hotel, New York.

The forum will feature a comprehensive analysis on developments impacting the cosmetics industry.

Two new federal bills, Personal Care Products Safety Act (S 1014) and The Safe Cosmetics Modernization Act (HR 4075), were introduced in order to update the current regulatory scheme and reflect the advances made in science and technology for cosmetics and personal care products.

ACI has designed this year’s agenda to help decision-makers and business leaders make sense of the ramifications of the pending federal bills and to provide a forum to help the industry develop solutions.

ICMAD president and CEO Pamela Jo Busiek will co-chair, along with Locke Lord LLP Counsel Sharon Blinkoff, who also serves as ICMAD board secretary and general counsel, and Thomas Cohn, general counsel for Atlantic Coast Brands.

The forum will feature representatives from Avon, Beiersdorf, Clorox, Colgate-Palmolive, Edgewell, Galderma, Rodan + Fields, and Unilever, as well as attorneys who practice in the cosmetic and personal products field.

In November, ICMAD declared support of HR 4075 as legislation that increases consumer protections on cosmetics while allowing continued growth of small and entrepreneurial cosmetics enterprises in the U.S.

Other ICMAD events on the horizon include the Cosmetic/Technical Regulatory Forum on Feb. 17 at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, CA.
