We offer RP services to ensure product compliance on the GB market
- 30 min30 minutes
In the UK a Responsible Person (RP) is a legal representative established within the UK who ensures the compliance of the cosmetic products placed on the GB market in accordance with the Cosmetics Regulations. Following UK exit from the EU, at the end of transition period (31 December 2020) any cosmetic product placed on the GB market (Article 2) must have a UK based RP (Article 4, 5 and 5A). If you are either manufacturer or importer based in the GB then you are the ‘RP’ for the cosmetics that you place on the GB market. However, in either cases, this responsibility could be transferred to another person established within the GB, based on a written mandate. If you wish to keep the role of the RP, we would still be happy to assist you with other services such as cosmetic safety assessment report, label compliance assessment and product notification services. If you choose CosmeTox to act as an RP for products placed on the GB market, we would ensure that the correct and up to date documentation is kept on file (PIF) for the raw materials, manufacturing process, product labeling, claims advice and notification of the product on the cosmetic portal. As part cosmetovigilance we would also monitor product-related adverse effects and provide advice on the resolution.
