Press Releases

SGS has launched a series of webinars to help suppliers of children’s cosmetics, cosmetic toys and promotional items better understand and apply EU regulations.

Each webinar will look at a different type of product, beginning with a look at children’s cosmetics and cosmetic toys – borderline products that could be subject to both the EU Cosmetics Regulation and the EU Directive on Toy Safety. Later webinars will cover promotional items, looking at a different type each month - toys, electrical and electronic, apparel, and food and drinkware.

Complying with the wrong regulation is an expensive business and, for borderline products, can be an easy mistake to make. These webinars will help you apply the correct EU regulations, helping you accelerate development times and avoid costly non-compliance issues.
