The Biomedical Standards Industry Series consists of a series of in-depth briefing sessions/workshops for biomedical-related companies that are interested and ready for standards implementation. These workshops will cover new and existing standards. Alongside with the long-term strategy towards industry transformation and improving productivity, standards implementation is another pathway towards improving company’s productivity, branding, economic competitiveness and assisting its foray into international markets.

The first part of the workshop looks at the evaluation of the anti-microbial protection of a cosmetic product through standards (e.g. ISO 11930:2012) which comprises of a preservation efficacy test and a procedure for evaluating the overall anti-microbial protection of at least a moderate risk cosmetic product.

The second part looks at the guidelines on stability testing of a cosmetic product to ensure that a new or modified product meets the intended physical, chemical and microbiological quality standards as well as functionality and aesthetics when stored under appropriate conditions.
