Andy has been a beekeeper for two years. Working for a company writing CPSRs (Cosmetic Product Safety Reports), SDSs (Safety Data Sheets) and compiling PIFs (Product Information Files), he began writing monthly articles for BBKA about the cosmetic regulations. With the help of his wife, Andy then set up a company, initially to help small scale beekeepers wishing to produce cosmetic products, to become compliant in a more cost effective way.

Andy’s talk will focus on the changes to the cosmetic regulations since Brexit, and will be followed by a question and answer session. It will be of interest to beekeepers who have, or are considering, producing cosmetic products using their own hive products.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
