International Regulatory Database
The International Regulatory Database (IRDB) is a comprehensive compilation of regulations for cosmetics and personal care products in over 60 countries. The information presented in the database contains, when available, the original language documents and their English translations. Subscribers will find subject areas including: rules on basic health laws, cosmetic regulations, packaging and environmental rules, advertising codes, product labeling, registration, and regional industry guidelines.
The IRDB also contains an ingredient database, where subscribers may obtain regulatory information on individual ingredients and compare them with the regulatory status in one or more countries. Any exceptions in individual country regulations, such as ingredient levels, usage, etc. are noted in the IRDB.
