The Safety and Technical Standards for Cosmetics (STSC) was released last December and will come into force on 1st Dec 2016, setting new technical requirements and testing methods for domestic and imported cosmetics. Six months later CFDA released an announcement specifying the transitional measures for implementing STSC to ensure that all companies smoothly complete the transition. However some topics in the announcement such as testing reports, formula modification, testing of cadmium, etc. are not explained clearly, which makes many companies confused. After attending a CFDA internal training course, Angelita Hu intends to share the answers to those important questions during a webinar and give some advice to companies for coping better with the upcoming changes. In addition, she will also give a detailed introduction of the STSC 2015.
