Cosmetic Regulation EU 1223/2009 replaces the existing EU Cosmetics Directive (76/768/EEC) and introduces a number of changes that will affect both manufacturers and importers of Cosmetic Products within the EU. The new regulation will apply from 11th July 2013.

One of the many changes is the introduction of the ‘Responsible Person’ (Article 4 & Article 5 – EU 1223/2009). This can be an individual or company who manufacturer in the EU or an importer who imports cosmetics into the EU. Those outside the EU can by ‘written mandate’ select a person, already established within the EU community as the Responsible Person, who will carry out all of their legal obligations in respect of the new Cosmetic Regulation, including safety assessments, maintenance of product files and registration.

This is where Advena can help...
