You can also order any of these services individually (except the responsible person service)
Cosmetic product classification
Not every product that we may consider cosmetic product in our everyday life would be classified as a cosmetic in the EU and the UK. And not every product that's classified as a cosmetic for example in USA would be classified as a cosmetic in the EU and the UK. We help you determine if your product is indeed a cosmetic product or not. You can also check the definition of cosmetic products in the EU and UK here.
EU/UK Cosmetics Responsible person
Each product placed on the EU and UK market needs to have an EU/UK based Responsible person (RP) assigned. Responsible person's main task is to ensure compliance of the cosmetic products with the EU regulation 1223/2009 and UK Schedule 34 to the Product Safety and Metrology etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019. CE.way takes over this role and ensures that your products are compliant with the EU and UK cosmetics legislation.
Cosmetics challenge test
Challenge test or preservative efficacy test (PET) is one of the parts of the Product Information File and of the Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR). Challenge test is required for most cosmetic products with the exception of microbiologically low risk products. CE.way checks the preservation system effectiveness using ISO 11930:2012 standard.
Stability and compatibility test
Cosmetics stability and compatibility test indicates the relative stability level of a product under the various conditions that it can be subjected to from the moment it is manufactured until the end of its validity as well as the product’s compatibility with its packaging. Stability and compatibility test is a base for determining the shelf life of a cosmetic product.
Cosmetics product information file (PIF)
Before placing a product on the market, it needs to have a Product Information File (PIF) prepared. In general Product Information File contains the product formula, various finished product, raw materials and packaging specifications and tests. CE.way lets you know which are all the documents that have to be included in the PIF and prepares the PIF. We can also perform some tests that have to be included in the PIF if you don't have those done yet.
Cosmetics safety assessment (CPSR)
Safety assessment is a vital part of the Product Information File. It can only be conducted by properly qualified professionals, who then conclude whether the product is safe and compliant with the EU and UK cosmetics regulation or not. CE.way can get the safety assessment done for you.
Product labelling and claims
Specific rules apply when it comes to cosmetic product labelling in the EU and UK. Certain things have to be written on the labels, others are prohibited. An imporant aspect of the labelling are also cosmetic product claims. We provide guidance on the labelling requirements, check your labels, and work with you to make them compliant. You can also check the labelling requirements here.
CPNP and SCPN notification
The final pre-market requirement is to notify your products to the CPNP (Cosmetic Products Notification Portal) and/or to the SCPN (Submit Cosmetic Product Notifications). CPNP and SCPN are online portals where certain information about the product has to be uploaded.
