Brexit (which is a combination of Britain and Exit) obligates NON-UK cosmetic manufacturers to appoint a UK based Responsible Person in order to place products on the market. The name and address of this RP should be added at the labels.
UK based Responsible Person have the same obligations with the RP in European Union.
According to United Kingdom Cosmeti Regulation 2009/1223 for cosmetics products, which entered into force on January 1, 2021, it is requested to establish a product safety assessment report for the products currently on the market or newly introduced to the market.
Article 19 of United Kingdom cosmetic Regulation 2009/1223 clarifies how the label of a cosmetic product should be. Labeling and packaging of your cosmetic products is a very important issue that should definitely be evaluated by experts.
New cosmetic products which will be put on the market after 1st January 2021 in UK must be notified in SCPN (Submit a Cosmetic Product Notification).
The cosmetic products which are already notified in CPNP (Cosmetic Product Notification Portal) will be avaliable in UK until 31th March 2021.
If you want to serve cosmetic products to United Kingdom market, you need to prepare a Product Information File as described in Cosmetic Regulation 2009/1223. Product Information File (PIF) is a must and have to be prepared for each cosmetic product seperately in English language.
