To help the industry get to grips with the latest personal care policies, CIRS is holding a summit on chemical regulatory updates in China, Korea, Japan, Europe, Australia, North America, Thailand and Taiwan.

Keeping up with Asia's regulations is a major point of focus for many global corporations which has prompted the Chemical Inspection & Regulation service to base an event around the China chemical management outlook and chemical control policy and trend in Shanghai. 

The REACH regulation has brought big challenges to both chemical companies up and down the supply chain and chemical management authorities since its implementation. 

Many other countries on the region soon followed suit, revising relevant chemical regulations so as to keep pace with the international chemical management tendency.

According to April Guo, head of cosmetics regulatory affairs; this summit on October 13-14th will build a bridge between the industry and chemical management authorities - providing clarity on regulations, notification/registration experiences, hazardous management, supervision and classification/GHS.

Mr. Yu Qunli, Director of China AQSIQ, Department of Inspection Supervision, and Mr. Dong Chao, Director of Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau are also set to give speeches around the outlook, opportunities and challenges of Asia Pacific chemical industry in 2015.

Focused sessions​ 

Other topics will include updates on hazardous chemical regulations and management in China and Thailand; GHS regulations and implementation in Canada, USA, China, Korea, Japan, Malaysia and Thailand; and the Chemical supervision in EU, Korea and China.

Experts from Japan, Korea and Malaysia have also been invited by the CIRS appointed committee to interpret the current status of cosmetic management and help the industry on the latest regulatory updates and administrative information in these areas.

Each session will be followed with a panel discussion where delegates will get the opportunity to discuss their concerns/ queries with relevant officials and experts.

There are as follows:

  • Session 1​: China chemical regulations
  • Session 2​: Supervisions in China
  • Session 3​: Global GHS
  • Session 4​: Chemical regulations in other Asia-Pacific countries/regions
  • Session 5​: Japan chemical regulations
