The Regulatory Environment
The introduction of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, which came into force on 11 July 2013, imposed more stringent procedures on organisations involved in the supply chain of cosmetics and personal care products.
To comply with these regulatory requirements, all cosmetic products being marketed within the European Union have to be registered on the new Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP), which was set up in January 2012.
This regulation impacts the following types of businesses:
- contract manufacturers
TSGE can help identify the most direct route to achieving compliance with the new regulation, providing guidance and support on all regulatory requirements.
We work closely with businesses to develop effective strategies and produce the necessary documentation and analysis to meet compliance requirements. Our key consultant in this sector has a long standing career in the cosmetics industry and is supported by a team of experienced scientists, including toxicologists.
Some of the areas in which we support businesses include:
Cosmetic Product Safety Reports (CPSR)
Our qualified safety assessors can ensure relevant and complete hazard and exposure data is gathered for cosmetic ingredients and products and provide safety assessment reports.
Product Information Files (PIFs)
We help businesses prepare PIFs that are compliant and meet all regulatory requirements.
Responsible Person Support
TSGE provides assistance with local representation services for non-European manufacturers. We are able to support the Responsible Person in all the technical aspects of their role.
We believe that proactive project management is essential to ensure that our clients’ needs are identified and met in a timely manner. We provide dedicated project managers who are committed to effective communication and project implementation.
