A look at the regulations around cosmetic products      by Andy Bullen

Andy has been a beekeeper for two years. Working for a company writing CPSRs (Cosmetic Product Safety Reports) and other documentation, he began writing monthly articles for BBKA about the cosmetic regulations. With the help of his wife, Andy then set up a company, initially to help small scale beekeepers wishing to produce cosmetic products, to become compliant in a more cost effective way.

Andy’s talk will focus on the changes to the cosmetic regulations since Brexit, and will be followed by a question and answer session.
