The Single Market – the term used to describe the free movement of goods, capital, people and services within the Member States of the European Union – is a cornerstone of the European Union. In order for it to work for a specific product sector, there must be similar legislation in place in all the Member States. For example, if a product is to move freely within the European Union, the same labelling, packaging and safety regulations must apply. In the early 1970’s the Member States of the European Economic Community (now called the European Union – EU) decided to harmonize their national cosmetic legislations in order to enable the free circulation of cosmetic products within the Community, on the basis of commonly agreed safety standards. The Cosmetics Directive was adopted in 1976. This Directive was reevaluated in 2009 to enable further harmonization and a EU-wide Cosmetics Products Regulation entered into force in July 2013.

The philosophy of the Cosmetics Regulation is that all products meeting the requirements of the Regulation should have equal and immediate access to the market and should be able to circulate freely throughout the European Union. In the EU, it is strongly believed that for fast moving consumer products, such as cosmetics, an in-market control system (also known as post-market control) is more effective than pre-market approval procedures. The key principle of the Cosmetics Regulation is that the person or company who places the cosmetic product on the market is responsible for that product (so called ‘Responsible Person’). It is the responsibility of that person or company (usually the manufacturer or the importer) to ensure that the product is safe and meets all the requirements of the Cosmetics Regulation. All stages of the development of the cosmetics product is regulated by the Cosmetics Regulation, from the choice of ingredients to the placing on the market of the product.

Manufacturing according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)

The EU Cosmetics Regulation stipulates that all cosmetics products must be manufactured in accordance with the harmonized standards laid out in GMP, in turn described in the Official Journal of the European Union.

GMP ensures that products are prepared in a clean environment and that the products are not contaminated in production. Microbial contamination can be quite common as many microorganisms live freely in the atmosphere around us, and could lead to degradation and, in severe cases, could cause harm to the consumer.

The EU Cosmetics Regulation includes a set of strict rules for labelling of cosmetic products, all of which must be present on the product container, packaging, or if not possible given space restrictions, in an enclosed leaflet. Without proper labelling, a product will not be permitted onto the market.
