Import cosmetics into Europe with a REACH only representative

REACH rep­re­sen­ta­tive reg­u­la­tion con­sid­ers also cos­met­ics as chem­i­cal sub­stances. So, to import cos­met­ics into the Euro­pean Union, all for­eign cos­met­ics man­u­fac­tur­ers must com­ply with REACH reg­u­la­tions.

This reg­u­la­tion pro­tects con­sumers and makes sure that all cos­met­ic prod­ucts on the Euro­pean mar­ket are safe.

The REACH rep­re­sen­ta­tive is aware of the sub­stances in the cos­met­ics, and know how these sub­stances behave both with­in the cos­met­ics they are used, and on their own.

REACH is the EU reg­u­la­tion (EC) No 1907/2006 con­cern­ing the Reg­is­tra­tion, Eval­u­a­tion and Autho­riza­tion of Chem­i­cals. It came into force on 1 June 2007.

For cos­met­ics man­u­fac­tur­ers, safe­ty should be the main prin­ci­ple in every­thing they do. Across all the oper­a­tions, research, devel­op­ment and inno­va­tion.

The Reach rep­re­sen­ta­tive can eval­u­ate all these cri­te­ria with­in the Euro­pean leg­is­la­tions. REACH reg­u­la­tions can impact both chem­i­cal raw mate­ri­als and fin­ished cos­met­ics prod­ucts.

The REACH Reg­u­la­tion places com­pli­ance require­ments on pro­duc­ers import­ing or man­u­fac­tur­ing cos­met­ics and oth­er per­son­al care prod­ucts in Europe.

The require­ments for cos­met­ics indus­tries include, but are not lim­it­ed to: pre-reg­is­tra­tion of sub­stances and ingre­di­ents, chem­i­cal test­ing and eval­u­a­tion, reg­is­tra­tion of sub­stances, man­age­ment of sup­ply chain, man­age­ment of down­stream users, and pos­si­ble restric­tion or noti­fi­ca­tion require­ments for chem­i­cals in their prod­ucts.

And, this means that all indus­tries that wish to sell their prod­ucts in Euro­pean union must have a REACH rep­re­sen­ta­tive in Europe.
