Duration : 90 minutes


Since July 2013, Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 on Cosmetic Products of the EU has been fully implemented and represents a modern regulatory framework grounded on state of the art of cosmetic science and product technology. It is structured in regulatory modules, which include the safety assessment and the Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR), Product Information File (PIF), Responsible Person (RP), label information, cosmetovigilance, substance regulations, claims, etc.

The legislator’s existing goal is assurance of the safety for the ingredients and for the cosmetics products in use of consumers. In-market control is assigned to EU Member State competent authorities.

The flow of information between countries is interlinked by the Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP), which is fed with the information by the demand for pre-market notification of cosmetic products and by ongoing cosmetovigilance procedures put in place with the respective provisions in the CPR.

The central role in cosmetovigilance applies to the Responsible Person while the access to manufacturers and responsible persons is assured by product labeling provisions.
