What is ICCR?

ICCR is an international organization founded by government departments from the US, the EU, Canada, Japan and Brazil aiming to protect the interests of global cosmetic consumers, provide an international "guidance" or "standard" for regulatory authorities worldwide, minimize international trade barriers, and promote cosmetic regulatory convergence in member states. The topics addressed to date include allergens, alternatives test, cosmetics safety assessments, nanotechnology/nanomaterials and unwanted trace elements. Stakeholders interested in learning more can refer to the official website of ICCR.

The next ICCR is scheduled to be held in Canada in 2019 when issues including safety assessment case study, cosmetic-related ISO standards, preservatives, allergen, communication with consumers, and the skin microbiome will be discussed. ChemLinked will follow progress and keep you updated.
