Additionally, Jon Hicks, director of International Trade and Regulatory Affairs, will provide an overview of the recently updated IRDB, which includes access to the latest regulatory requirements for cosmetics and personal care products. IRDB is the most comprehensive global regulatory resource with information from more than 90 countries, including 160,000 ingredient restrictions.

Updates to the INCIpedia platform are made continuously and in real-time as new information becomes available.

InfoBase and the IRDB are available exclusively to PCPC members.
