Dear Colleague

It is a pleasure to extend to you a personal initiation to the upcoming Virtual 5th ERPA Annual Congress on Regulations and Compliance for Cosmetics (CRCC2021) organized by ERPA.

One of the greatest privileges I have as Chairman of ERPA (European Cosmetics Responsible Person Association) is to witness first-hand the impact our network has on people and organizations around the world. Our ecosystem touches the lives of many people and has the potential to create opportunities for our customers and partners. This is why, I would be thrilled to see you at this year’s edition of the congress, and welcome you to our community!
The breadth and depth of our mission is powered by our top experts from different walks of life: authorities, regulators, businesses, that allow us to enable the impact that fuels our results!

At a time when digital communication is transforming every industry and every part of our daily life and work, we are committed to run an event that reaches as far as possible and fosters collaboration and engagement among its participants. The 5th edition of the Congress will be supported by a special digital platform, allowing everyone to connect, attend, stay connected, while granting access to the resources provided during the congress even after its completion.

As such, the CRCC is planned as follows:
• On January, 26th and 27th, 2021 the complete ERPA 5th CRCC
• You may find the preliminary agenda of the ERPA 5th CRCC here
• All sessions will be virtual

This event addresses to all those involved in the cosmetics field worldwide, such as
• Manufacturers of cosmetic products
• Members of the regulatory department in business related to cosmetics
