The EU implemented a new regulatory framework for cosmetics, which clarified and extended a modular approach taken from the earlier directive and at the same time changed the legal procedure to direct validity over all Member States. Regulatory modules, including the safety assessment, notification, GMP, substance regulation, cosmetovigilance, etc., can be easily transferred into other countriesí legislation, which is wanted in view of more harmonized international requirements.

All suppliers of cosmetic ingredients will have to comply with the CLP classification rules for their products.
