Do you want to sell your cosmetic products in EU & UK?
On 1 January 2021, the UK Government department Office for Product Safety and Standards launched the UK cosmetic notification portal. The portal is called Submit Cosmetic Product Notification (SCPN), and it allows the notification of cosmetics products, which are made available to consumers in Great Britain (GB: England, Scotland, and Wales).
Introduction to Cosmetics in the EU Market
The EU Market is the largest and most desired export market in the world for cosmetic and personal care products. In 2017 alone, personal care product sales accounted for 77.6 billion euros.
The complexity of the regulatory framework in Europe and the ongoing updates related especially to ingredients used in cosmetic products might challenge Brand Owners in having their products effectively placed on the EU Market without the support and assistance of a professional EU Responsible Person.
From July 11, 2013, the Cosmetic Regulation EC 1223/2009 became fully applicable in the EU as the main legal framework for cosmetic products.
Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP)
One of the main requirements of the Regulation EC 1223/2009 is the pre-market notification. The Notification can only be completed by the designated Responsible Person and only AFTER the Product Information File encloses all evidence of conformity.
- EU Responsible Person (EU RP)
- Formulation review
- Compilation of Product Information File (PIF)
- Label review
- Notification on the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP)
Once all these steps are completed, then COSMETIC PRODUCT CAN ENTER THE EU MARKET.
