As part of its statutory functions, Ghana Standards Authority (GSA), once again reconstructs the National Technical Committee for Cosmetics (GSA/TC 3) by scouting for individuals from a selected number of organizations.
The call for experts from the priviledged few, been identified as important stakeholders by GSA for the committee is a strategy to engage experts and professionals. Since the scope of work of this Technical Committee is Standardization and doubles as the National Mirror Committee (NMC) which supports Regional and International Standardization activities for the cosmetics sector.
Within the framework of driving for standardization, the beauty industry advocate – Makeup Ghana (MUG) over the years engaged with GSA, to explore the development of a private quality certification scheme for beauty products and therefore the call did come as no surprise.
MUG serving on the committee is represented by the Founder/CEO; Rebecca Donkor as the Principal Representative and the Founder/CEO of Colorbox Cosmetics; Stephanie Adu as the Alternate Representative. These two vibrant female entrepreneurs are known for holding in high esteem the best and approved practices in operating in the beauty space and therefore will ensure the implementation of excellent measures for the sector.
