The summit will include international speakers and panelists who will provide insights into the latest issues relating to legislation, scientific technologies and the consequent impact of regulation for the personal care, cosmetic and related packaging industries.

Show director Jack Gonzalez refers the current evolution of regulation within the industry as being a 'revolution' that is redefining safety of personal care products.

The summit will start off with a keynote speech from Bruce Ames, entitled 'Maximizing Health: The World of Risks in Perspective.'

Ames is a professor at the Graduate School of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, University of California at Berkley and is also recognized for developing the Ames Mutagenicity Test, a simple, inexpensive test that screens for environmental carcinogens and mutagens.

Other presentations will be given by experts on current and emerging global regulations, toxicologists, legal regulatory experts, as well as companies providing services that have already met both the new and the anticipated requirements of the regulations, as well as industry consultants and experts from The Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association.

Summit topics include: The Toxic Ingredient Issue; REACH: The Forthcoming EU Chemicals Regulation, Regulatory Issues and Trends Impacting the US Cosmetics Industry; Developing a Global Regulatory Strategy; Restricted Substances in Consumer Goods; Animal Testing Legislation Update; Regulatory Changes for Personal Care & Cosmetic Packaging; and Nanomaterials in Personal Care Products and FDA Regulation.

The summit will culminate in an interactive moderated discussion involving a total 15 speakers and delegates, where questions are invited from the audience regarding the issues raised by the summit, as well as anything that may not have been covered.
