    ICCR is a voluntary international group of cosmetics regulatory 
authorities from the United States, Japan, the European Union, and 
Canada. These regulatory authority members will enter into constructive 
dialogue with their relevant cosmetics' industry trade associations. 
Currently, the ICCR members are Health Canada; the European Directorate 
General for Enterprise and Industry; the Ministry of Health, Labor and 
Welfare of Japan; and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. All 
decisions made by the consensus will be compatible with the laws, 
policies, rules, regulations, and directives of the respective 
administrations and governments. Members will implement and/or

promote actions or documents within their own jurisdictions and seek 
convergence of regulatory policies and practices. Successful 
implementation will require input from stakeholders.
