In April-May, the APC together with ISTL held a series of webinars “Safety of the working environment at the enterprise; countering the spread of Covid-19”.

The purpose was to help manufacturers adopt to the new demands of pandemic.

In the process, we, together with the participants, learned how to build a “healthy” production, learned ways to rehabilitate it after quarantine and have already implemented some measures of safety.

We wanna share some comments from APCU members who joined the training:

“Seminars of the series” Safety of the working environment at the enterprise; counteraction to the spread of COVID – 19 “are informative and structured, with specific action plans and methods of monitoring their implementation in enterprises.” ⁃ Watsons Ukraine

“Supermash  considers it appropriate and important to hold these seminars, because life did not prepare us for such tests, and most companies were not ready to work in such conditions. This information helps to avoid the risks of the disease now and in the future, to preserve the health of its employees and find the right, clear way to solve the problem of Covid-19. ” ⁃ Supermash

“Webinar” Safety of the working environment at the enterprise; counteraction to the spread of COVID-19 “was useful for Leko Style. One of the key issues discussed at the webinar was the need to conduct internal audits of the company, as well as a description of the adapted procedure for their implementation and corrective action algorithms. It was noted that special attention in conducting internal audits should be focused on compliance with the requirements of control over the prevention of the epidemic: reasonable use of service areas, areas of mass events – meetings, adaptation of production sites, canteens and other public places. ”

Each of the economy world industries and businesses today undergoing significant changes and the beauty industry is not an exception…

In today’s crisis, the race “pandemic vs cosmetics industry” is increasingly difficult.

Cosmetics and personal care companies strive to provide consumers around the world with safe and effective products in such vulnerable times. However, it is a fact, that personal hygiene products are first and foremost important for human health and essential for maintaining daily hygiene as a protection against the virus.
Therefore, international cooperation is now a preamble to the rehabilitation of the modern cosmetics business. APCU is an equal member of the International Association Collaboration (IAC), which is already taking some steps, stating the need to support perfume and cosmetics production at the govern level and the need for close cooperation with the state regulatory apparatus.

Initiatives of the international industry community in Ukraine are implemented by the work of the APCU. Thanks to APCU our domestic manufacturer has an opportunity to speak in the international arena and to be heard. The Association strives to provide up-to-date information and qualified support to international cosmetic associations, foreign manufacturers, and Ukrainian consumers.

Among issues stated by the IAC:
Modern requirements for technical regulation in cosmetic production;
The problem of some government bans on equipment that could help stop COVID-19, its export;
Priority of detergents and disinfectants;
Update of raw material and packaging supply chains;
Formation among the population of a new culture of consumption in matters of personal hygiene
and many others

According to a global today’s virus, the importance of personal care products for human health cannot be denied.Therefore, along with international associations, APCU supports all interstate sectoral initiatives and advocates for the status of the cosmetics industry as a “life-sustaining” and the inclusion in the state list of critical infrastructure for manufacturers of cosmetics and personal care products.

In global cooperation, we are ready for new challenges, ready to defend and implement!
