The EU cosmetics registration process is regarded by some to be the most challenging, as far as the global markets go. We do not expect you to have it mastered when you first contact us, our dedicated team will take you through it step by step. We have done so with clients from every part of the world, small and large, across all categories of cosmetic products, such as skin care, hair care, infant care, oral care, beauty products, etc.

Europe is one of the most preferred markets for cosmetic products in the world. The notification of cosmetic products in the region is monitored by the European Commission (EC) under Regulation EC No. 1223/2009. The regulation aims to harmonize the notification process of cosmetics across the EU, covering all 27 EU member states along with Norway, Iceland, and Lichtenstein.

According to Regulation EC No. 1223/2009, every cosmetic product, before being placed on the market, should have a legal or natural person in the EU known as an EU Responsible Person (RP), who will oversee the safety and compliance of documentation of the cosmetic product and maintains the EU Product Information File (EU PIF). The role and obligations of an RP are listed in detail under Regulation EC No. 1223/2009. The regulation also defines a centralized online notification system (known as the Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP), wherein the manufacturers must notify their cosmetic products to sell them in the entire EU.

Freyr, with exclusive offices in the EU (Germany) and the UK, supports new market entrants with the EU cosmetic compliance and EU cosmetic labeling for expedited market entry. Freyr acts as Responsible Person (RP) throughout the EU and the UK.
