Urgent Action Advised by BEIS in Brexit ‘No Deal’ Guidance Letter on Cosmetics

29/01/2019

The Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS), which is part of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), issued a letter highlighting the practical changes that cosmetic companies have to take in a ‘no deal’ Brexit scenario, in relation to the requirements stated in the draft UK Cosmetics Regulation Statutory Instrument.

The practical changes involve:

  • setting up a UK Responsible Person (RP) and prepare for the transfer of notification from the EU CPNP to the UK version of the database;
  • notification requirements for products put on the market before Exit day and products put on the market after Exit day;
  • importers obligations for companies that were distributors before Brexit;
  • labelling of the UK RP address on pack.
