Ladies and Gentlemen
On the day before the opening of Biofach / Vivaness 2014, BDIH and
IONC will give you the opportunity to get detailed information about
the advantages of certification of natural and organic cosmetics.
This workshop is intended for all users of BDIH control characters
and for everyone who is interested in certification of end products
and raw materials according to BDIH / COSMOS-standards.
We will give you a comprehensive overview and also the possibility
to clarify your specific questions. You will receive detailed
explanations, especially concerning the requirements that are posed
for end products and raw materials from the practical point of view
according to BDIH and COSMOS-standards.
The principle of the internationally harmonized COSMOS-standard and
its relation to the BDIH standard of natural cosmetics will be
presented as well as the process of inspection and the possibilities
offered by the recently published COSMOS-standard 2.0.
The event starts at 2 pm and will presumably end at 5 pm. From 1 pm
on, refreshments will be provided for you.
Should you already be in Nuremberg to make preparations for the
coming fair or should you plan to visit it, then you have the very
simple possibility to participate in our event, which is free of
course, in the room Nizza of the exhibition centre (see below).
