According to a news source, South African lawmakers intend to start regulating the country’s cosmetics industry, which, for the past 20 years, has apparently been self-regulated  with assistance from the Cosmetic, Toiletry & Fragrance Association (CTFA) of South Africa. With a  goal “to support and develop a sustain- able and respected South African Cosmetic Industry by  proactively stimulating actions and developing tools that contribute to its growth and the progress  of its Members as well as promot[e] consumer safety,” CFTA has reportedly served as the industry’s  main voice, guiding members on the self-regulatory codes of practice and standards. Sinah Mosehla,  South African Department of Trade & Industry director of cosmetics is scheduled to present an  overview of the country’s current and future regulatory landscape at the upcoming Global Cosmetic  Compliance summit slated for May 27-29, 2014, in Amsterdam.
