We are an active member of the following international organizations: Cosmetics Europe, The International Association for Soaps, Detergents and Maintenance Products A.I.S.E. and European Aerosol Federation FEA
While participating in meetings, discussions and consultations, we present the positions of the Polish cosmetics and detergent industries to them. Thanks to that, we have become an important stakeholder, whose opinion is listened to by the Polish government, the European Parliament, the European Commission – they are the institutions that have a direct influence on the legislative change processes and the final shape of the law.
Our membership in Cosmetics Europe ensures the Members of the Association access to the EU scientific, technological and legislative information concerning cosmetic products. Acting in favour of our companies, we gain and gather knowledge on international experiences, provide opinions and support the projects of Cosmetics Europe, such as:
- AAT: Alternatives to Animal Testing
- TTIP – Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership
- Advertising self-regulatory system on the territory of the EU

On 1st January 2016, the Association joined the European Aerosol Federation – FEA. This membership means access to the European first hand information – this information is delivered to all our Members. We encourage them to take part in consultations and deliver their opinions on the legal acts important for the industry. In this way, the position of the Polish aerosol sector is known to FEA and they forward it to the European Commission. This means that, together, we are able to prevent negative changes in the legislation. Already today, there is a Working Group on Aerosols operating within the structure of the Polish Association of Cosmetic and Detergent Industry.
