The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has filed with the World Trade Organization a notice of its draft proposal to regulate cosmetics and personal care products, including a requirement for companies to label cosmetic products that contain nanomaterials. According to a news source, the regulations are similar to European Union cosmetic regulations scheduled to take effect in July 2013. Medical products and devices and biocidal products will evidently be excluded from the UAE’s regulation. See Nanotechnology Industries Association News Release, May 22, 2013.
