Brief Introduction and Opening
• Anne Dux, Scientific and Regulatory Affairs Director, in charge of European relations - FEBEA

The microbial load
• Françoise Audebert, Scientific Advisor - Scientific and Regulatory Affairs Directorate - FEBEA

Workshop 1: The subcontract : the key elements for a successful collaboration
The subcontract is meant to give a frame to the relationship between the contractor and the subcontractor, by defining the collaboration conditions. Building on the GMPs demands, the workshop will provide a practical approach to show how to set up solid bases and assure the product quality through the contract, so that inconveniencies due to a lack of clarity can be avoided.
• Julien Delearde, Associate Director-EMEA Strategic External Manufacturers Q&C - Johnson et Johnson Consumer
• Fabien Frère, Head of Quality Assurance - Canel Parfums Beauté
• Yann Taniou, Head of Quality PA/FP - Parfums Christian Dior
• Sandrine Gabillaud, Trainer Consultant - Ifis Cosmétique
• Pascal Moreau, Director Environment Safety Quality - BCM Fareva
• Aurélia Gautret, Quality Assurance Coordinator - Shiseido

Workshop 2: Production of successive batches : how to prevent contaminations during manufacturing and packaging
The contamination risk is one of the most critical risks identified by the cosmetics GMPs, because the potential consequences are very serious as far as the consumer safety contamination risk control is the basis of cosmetics quality is concerned. However, risk control is not “over-quality”, nor “same solutions whatever the case”. The cosmetic GMPs asks for a profound knowledge of our processes and a clear identification of our critical control point, through a hazard analysis. This workshop will define the adequate measures required when producing successive batches.
• Bertrand Cornamy, Head of Quality Assurance - Avène Production Unit - Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique
• Paula Ferreira, Head of Quality Assurance - Parfums Christian Dior
• Philippe Devès, Quality Assurance Department Manager - Ifis Cosmétique

Workshop 3: Containers and tranfer hoses management
Before being in its primary pack, the cosmetic product is in contact with several equipments and containers. If not managed, that contact can have an impact on the cosmetic product quality. This workshop will propose an analysis method to identify the right questions to have and the practical measures to take. The transfer hoses often lack of attention whereas they are an essential part in the product risk.
