SME experts comment on EC cosmetics regulation

GRTU published this week its comments on a proposal made by the European Commission for a regulation on cosmetic products. According to GRTU experts, the EC’s choice to move from the existing directive to a new regulation will be of great help in creating a level playing field and avoiding differences in national implementation.

A single, clear and coherent text will also contribute to reducing administrative costs for SMEs. However, GRTU sought clarifications on a number of points, for instance on the definition of “producer” used by the EC, which differs slightly from the terminology used by the profession.

Moreover, the Regulation mainly deals with “consumers” and mentions the professional use of cosmetics only in connection with the restrictions defined in annexes, while GRTU would prefer the term “users” in order to take into account the use of cosmetic products by professionals.
