The purpose of this course is to familiarize you with the ‘jargon’ and the legal ‘requirements’ regarding cosmetics. After this course, you will know which information you need to collect, what is needed to market cosmetics in the Netherlands or Europe and what to expect from the Dutch government and other Dutch authorities.

For whom

This course is designed for you, if:
• you have not marketed cosmetics before
• you are a start-up company in cosmetics development
• you want to import cosmetics from outside the EU
• you are experienced, but feel you don’t know enough about the legal framework

We’ll add to what you already know!

The course is designed for one, maximum two persons. This allows us to adjust the course exactly to your situation, questions and level of knowledge.
