Since July 2023, Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) has served as the rotating Chair for the 18th cycle of the International Cooperation on Cosmetics Regulation (ICCR-18). From July 9th to 11th this year, TFDA successfully hosted the 18th annual closed-door meeting, and the international symposium on "Transformation and Innovation in Cosmetics." This marks a significant milestone for Taiwan, affirming the TFDA's efforts in aligning its cosmetics regulatory practices with global standards.

ICCR, comprised of a voluntary international group of regulatory bodies, aims to harmonize global cosmetics regulations to ensure consumer safety. The annual meeting included representatives from 12 countries including the European Union, the United States, Canada, Japan, Brazil, South Korea, and Israel, totaling 50 participants, who extensively discussed collaborative efforts and developments in cosmetics regulations around the globe. Additionally, the symposium featured four speakers representing cosmetics associations from Taiwan, Japan, and Europe, who shared insights on topics such as green factories and climate-resilient cosmetics, exploring sustainable perspectives and global trends in the industry. More than 300 representatives and professionals from the cosmetics industry, both domestic and international, participated. The participants expressed satisfaction with the outcomes and anticipate future gatherings in Taiwan.

Given the rapidly evolving global trends in cosmetics management, Taiwan is resolute in our determination to be on par with the rest of the world. The TFDA will continue to collaborate with cosmetics regulatory bodies overseas, playing a crucial role in the harmonization of cosmetics regulations on an international level. Simultaneously, TFDA will work alongside local industry to showcase Taiwan's vibrant cosmetics industry and its international competitiveness to the world.
