An online course from The Center for Professional Advancement (CfPA) will look at the best ways for cosmetics and personal care companies to tap into opportunities in the Asia Pacific Market.

The two-part course will be held on July 19th​ and 26th​, and will consist of two one and half hour webinar broadcasts focusing on growth areas in a region that has continued to defy the economic downturn and saturation affecting the developed markets of North America and Western Europe.

The course will provide a complete overview of the Asia Pacific region, looking at the highly sophisticated and developed market of Japan, together with fast growing and evolving markets such as the ASEAN countries and India.

A brief overview of opportunities in the Asia Pacific market

Ultimately the course intends to be a brief overview for more mature companies wanting to expand their business by entering the Asia Pacific market for cosmetic and personal care.

The two parts of the course will be divided geographically, with the first part being focused on Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the Australasian market, comprising Australia and New Zealand.

The second part will focus on the ASEAN markets, which comprises Indonesia​, Malaysia​, the Philippines​, Singapore​, Thailand​, Brunei​, Burma, Cambodia​, Laos​, and Vietnam​, together with the all-important India market.

Flexibility to choose course according to area of interest

The organizers recommend that both courses should be attended to get a good feel for the Asia Pacific market as a whole, but also stress that the courses may be taken individually, depending on the specific area of geographic interest.

Specific areas that each of the two courses will cover include the legal framework and anticipated legal changes to regulate the manufacturing and sale of cosmetics and personal care products in each market.

Likewise, it will also take an in depth look at the national and regional contrasts in regulatory definitions, product classifications and safety and testing requirements, as well as outlining specific requirements for foreign-made or branded products and ingredients.
