Cosmetics Regulatory Services in the UK

The United Kingdom (UK) has officially left the European Union (EU) and the transition period for Brexit has ended on December 31, 2020. Hence, from January 01, 2021, manufacturers must abide by the new cosmetic regulations in the UK and the existing EU cosmetic regulations in all remaining EU countries.

Below are a few post-Brexit changes:

  • UK Responsible Person (RP): Manufacturers cannot place a product in the UK market unless a Responsible Person (RP) based in the UK is appointed.
  • Product Labels: Labeling-specific requirements in the UK are like the EU standards so the product label should contain, among others, the UK Responsible Person’s (RP) name and address as well as the country of origin, if the product is made outside of the UK.
  • Product Information File (PIF): The PIF must be held by the UK RP and must be kept for ten (10) years after the last batch of the cosmetic product was placed on the market.
  • SCPN Notification: All cosmetics products placed on the UK market must be notified through an online portal called Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP). Separate notifications are required in both the EU and the UK.

Freyr, with exclusive offices in the UK and Germany, supports your product notification using existing documentation, preparation of safety reports, and label revision, ensures cosmetic compliance in the UK, and acts as a Responsible Person (RP) on your behalf within the UK and the EU.
