The UK may have made its exit from EU on 31 January 2020, But 31 December 2020 is more important date for EU cosmetics and personal care industry. The cosmetic products are still under the EU Cosmetic Regulation until the end of this year. It indicates that all cosmetic and personal care products must comply with the future UK regulation.
Many companies are still not prepared for the changes, some have had to focus their efforts to deal with issues raised by the pandemic and some other have waited for the conclusion of the trade negotiations. Some notable issues involved are Cosmetic Notification Portal (CNP), re-labelling and having a Responsible Person (RP) as a legal entity to represent cosmetic businesses in the UK or within the EU.
