THE european Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009

Same rules for 32 countries in Europe

Since 2013, the European regulation (EC) n°1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on Cosmetic products is applied in the European Union + Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein. This regulation’s aim was to simplify procedures within the European territory. During several months, the authorities have worked to elaborate what are now the strictest rules in the world.

This regulation is so complicated that experts alone can navigate through it. But this legal uniformity also means that you only have to go through the registration process once to be able to sell your products in 32 countries!


What does it mean for cosmetic brands?

What do you need to be able to sell in the EU?

You need a Product Information File for each of your products. This Product Information File will contain :
– The CPSR-A, gathering all the documents and tests related to the product
– The CPSR-B, which is the Safety Assessment of the product carried out and signed by a Safety Assessor

This document will be asked by your distributor/importer.

Your products need to be registered on the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal, which is an online plateform where the authorities and poison centers can access information about your product

This number will be asked by the customs.

All cosmetic products sold within the EU must have a responsible person (who can be a company or a physical person) based in the EU, whose/which name and address will appear on the label.

The mandatory information that needs to appear on your labels must be translated in the official languages of the countries your products are going to be sold.
