BIW Update on Key FDA Regulatory Actions & Issues

Crowne Plaza Hotel - LAX

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

11:30 AM Registration/Networking

12 Noon Luncheon & 1 to 2 pm Presentations

Regulatory changes have been made at both the State and Federal levels that affect our industry, as well as an increased level of FDA oversight of on line personal care companies. In 2017, the FDA issued numerous Warning Letters citing illegal drug claims associated with topical skin care, and eyelash/eyebrow preparations. 2018 has seen fewer such actions against cosmetic companies, yet new legislation and enforcement measures are being proposed for our industry. These areas of FDA involvement will be discussed by our Speaker, as well as providing an overview of any proposed regulatory changes.
