DGK/IKW Safety Assessment Seminar

Through individual training segments, it offers the opportunity to achieve the “DGK Safety Assessor” certificate. For the first time a Safety Assessment Seminar will be offered together with CTFA (Cosmetic, Toiletries & Fragrance Association) South Africa where safety assessors and those who want to become involved will have the opportunity to learn about innovations while gaining hands-on experience in workshops with peers.
