If you are reading those lines, you are probably ready to take your company to the next level and start your expansion on the largest cosmetic market in the world, valued at 78,6 billion euros at retail sales price.
Yet, in order to have your products reach the 500 million potential customers out there, you need to have them registered.
You may already have read dozens of articles to understand the basics of the European Regulation (EC) 1223/2009, to know which documents you need to go through customs or how you can find a Responsible Person for your products in Europe.
Words such as Safety Assessment, Product Information file (PIF), Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR), CPNP, claims or Challenge Test
may have come across as incomprehensible scientific terms and have left you puzzled. After you also realised that only a Safety Assessor can perform the CPSR that will open all the doors for your product, you should have come to the conclusion that you cannot do it on your own.
So, you need help. That’s what we are here for.
Every day, we provide our customers with the precious certification they need to be able to ship their products to Europe. Every day, we advise cosmetic brands on how to stay ahead of the game.

1 registration process to access 32 countries
32 European countries follow the same legislation. That means that your products only need to be registered once to enter all countries. The registration process consists of 5 steps and the lead time to complete a project really depends on how fast technical documents such as GMP, MSDS, etc. can be provided and if the mandatory tests have already been performed (some tests take up to 3 months). Taking this into account, it generally takes about 90 days to complete a project, but it can be much faster if all documents are ready.

1 Registration process for 32 countries
What are the steps of the process?
The registration process is sliced into 5 steps:
PIF – Product Information File
1. Formula Check – during this step, each raw material is carefully analysed to see whether it is accepted or not in Europe
2. CPSR-A & CPSR-B – the most important part of the PIF. It gathers all documents related to the product. The CPSR-B is the Safety Assessment signed by a Safety Assessor
3. Label & Claims Check – is a thorough analysis of the elements that should appear on the label based on the formula and the legislation. The claims are also carefully studied since they are highly regulated in Europe
CPNP & SCPN Notification
4. We notify your products on the CPNP (EU) and on the SCPN (UK)
Responsible Person Service
5. We become your EU and/or UK Responisble Person
