Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP)

From July 11, 2013 the placing of cosmetic products on the European market is regulated by Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009  of the European Parliament and of the Council on cosmetic products.

Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 (Article 13) requires that the responsible persons and, under certain circumstances, the distributors of cosmetic products submit through the CPNP some information about the products they place or make available on the European market.

The CPNP also contains a separate module (Article 16) to be used by responsible persons to submit some specific information about cosmetic products containing nanomaterials. Article 16 makes it mandatory for the responsible person to notify a product containing nanomaterials at least 6 months prior to the placing of products on the market.

The notification of a product through the CPNP is mandatory since 11 July 2013.

Cosmetic industry conveys information to EU about cosmetic products placed on the market through the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal. This information is especially important for the Poison Centres, which allows them to react quickly and provide better medical treatment. This new portal is no less important for the Competent Authorities for the purposes of market surveillance. This portal also reduces the administrative burden on the industry.

CPNP is a result of two-year intensive co-operation between the European Commission, National Competent Authorities, European Poison Centres and the Cosmetic Industry. It features a simple user interface for the submitting of information and it is accessible in every official EU language.

The responsible person (manufacturer/importer) shall submit from January 11, 2012 and the distributor of cosmetic products on certain conditions from July 11, 2013 all information listed in Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009. From January 11, 2013 the responsible person (manufacturer/importer) shall provide information about cosmetic products containing nanomaterials according to Article 16 of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009.
