Cosmetic Products


Before placing a cosmetic product on the market, a manufacturer or importer must prepare product information file (PIF) of the cosmetic product and notify it into the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP).

A distributor must notify the cosmetic product into CPNP in case they translate the label for the product sold in another EU Member State.
