Webinar: California Safe Cosmetics Program Compliance

Sept. 9, 2021, 12:00 p.m. ET

The California Safe Cosmetics Act of 2005 requires cosmetic product manufacturers to report any ingredients known or suspected to cause cancer or developmental or other reproductive harm to the California Department of Public Health. The California Safe Cosmetics Program (CSCP), which implements the Act, maintains a consumer-facing public database that lists all reporting companies, products and ingredients. In 2020, California enacted SB 312, which expands the scope of the Act and mandates companies report certain fragrance and flavor ingredients, as well as fragrance allergens, present in a cosmetic product in specified concentrations.

On Thursday, Sept. 9, from 12 noon – 1 p.m. EDT, please join PCPC and Paula Johnson, Ph.D., MPH, chief, California Safe Cosmetics Program, for an in-depth discussion of the CSCP, new and existing compliance mandates, reporting fields, timelines and resources.

This webinar is complimentary for PCPC members.
