MDSS supports your company to market your cosmetic products safe and compliant in the EU and UK.

As the Responsible Person (“RP”) for your company’s products, MDSS acts as the legal representative within the European Union (EU) and/or the United Kingdom (UK) as the first point of contact for the competent authorities.

Our services include the comprehensive support on the implementation of the European Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009 and the UK Cosmetics Regulation (orig. “The Product Safety and Metrology etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, Schedule 34”). This includes the support on establishing the legally required document dossier, the Product Information File (PIF).

Of particular importance for the PIF is the preparation of the safety assessment. This is a written evaluation of the available documentation (e.g. quantitative composition of the final product, data on raw materials, etc.) and must be prepared individually for each product, or for each formulation.

Please contact us for more information.
