Cosmetic Products Notification Portal
In order to launch any cosmetic product on the market you must register your goods on the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP) (article 13).
This is an electronic notificationplatform and CPNP portal registration makes this information available electronically to the competent authorities (for the purposes of market surveillance, market analysis, evaluation and consumer information) and to poison centers or similar bodies established by EU Member States (for the purposes of medical treatment).
If your cosmetic product was placed on the market prior to 11 July 2013 and is no longer being manufactured, a distributor that introduces that product in a Member of State after that date shall communicate with the Responsible Person in relation to submitting the necessary data to the CPNP.
The CPNP is a free of charge online notification system created for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on cosmetic products .
When a product has been notified in the CPNP there is no need for any further notification at national level in the European Union.
Registration of your product on the CPNP is free ; however, it is a time-consuming administration job, in which you have to go through different steps to enter data on your products, and the Responsible Person. We would be happy to provide this service for a fraction of the cost to you in lost time.
