Cosmeservice is pleased to announce this useful webinar to make the export process to the EU & the UK in an easy way. It would be a great opportunity to know the complete process for the registration of cosmetic products in compliance with the new United Kingdom requirements and the European Cosmetic Regulation (EC) document No. 1223/2009.
Below, you will find the main steps we will be talking about to complete the registration for your cosmetic products:
1. Designate a RESPONSIBLE PERSON located in Europe and/or the UK:
Cosmeservice offers these services because we are located in these two territories. At the beginning of this year, Cosmeservice established a new office in the UK to provide this service to companies that are interested in it. Do not hesitate to contact us to request more information from our experts.
The Responsible Person service will include:
A single annual fee covers all the products we assess and notify into the EU CPNP and the UK SCPN under our name as Responsible Person, limited to just five brands.
2. Product Information File (PIF) or Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR)
The PIF must be available at the address of the Responsible Person within the EU and the UK. Every cosmetic product must have its Product Information File in English, containing all the information about the product, its manufacturing method and the UK or the EU Responsible Person.
This document must be kept up-to-date at all times and follow any changes in regulations, and it has to be available to the Health AUTHORITIES up to ten years after the last product was commercialized.
At Cosmeservice, our internal Safety Assessors perform the Product Information File (PIF or CPSR) with the highest quality and professionalism.
3. Notification of the product into the EU CPNP or The UK SCNP
One of the responsibilities of the Responsible Person is to notify the assessed products into the corresponding portals. The Responsible Person will carry out the notifications into the EU CPNP (European Cosmetic Product Notification Portal) and UK SCNP (British Submit Cosmetic Products Notification).
4. Labelling of the products
The name and address of the EU and UK Responsible Person must be indicated on the label of cosmetic products.
We recommend you to choose a professional Responsible Person in Europe and the United Kingdom in order to unify all regulatory services in the same consulting company.
5. Mandatory Testing… and much more!
The Safety Assessor in charge of the assessment of the cosmetic products should have favourable results about the following mandatory tests to justify the safety of the products. These compulsory tests would be Patch or Open Test, Challenge Test and Stability & Compatibility Test.
Cosmeservice could perform all of these tests in our labs to assess product safety according to the requirements. But, if your company or your manufacturer have already performed these mandatory tests, we would only need to receive the final reports with the results to check them and include the reports in the Product Information File (PIF).
If you have any questions or you need additional information about Cosmeservice and the registration process, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be pleased to help you.
