Since the Regulation 1223/2009 on cosmetic products came into force in July 2013, a Responsible Person (RP) must be designated for each cosmetic product placed on the EU market. The Responsible Person is in charge of ensuring compliance of the cosmetic product in accordance with articles 4 and 5 of the Cosmetic Regulation.

The RP must be a legal or natural Person based in the European Union and has a key strategic role:

  • Ensure the compliance of products placed on the EU market
  • Shoulder all obligations described in the Regulation
  • Cooperate as a single point of contact with competent EU authorities

EcoMundo with its 2 offices (Paris, France and Vancouver in Canada) provides services in both French and English. Our Responsible Person services cover the 31 countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) and enable you to sell your cosmetics throughout the entire European market.

EcoMundo guarantees your compliance before the European authorities and therefore makes sure the product is safe for human health.


The Product Information File is a key-element that is necessary to place your cosmetic products on the European Market. The Cosmetic Regulation (EC) 1223/2009 sets the legal framework in Article 11 and requires all actors of the cosmetic industry to constitute a Product Information File (PIF) for each cosmetic product.

The PIF has to be kept by the Responsible Person for a period of ten years after the last batch of the product was placed on the market.

Attention: If you are not compliant before placing your product on the EU market you risk a complete interruption of your supply chain and it can affect your business. Our experts can help you avoid this issue and reach full compliance.


The Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR) is the main part of the Product Information File (PIF). Divided in two parts, it is a mandatory requirement from the Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009.

Part A of the CPSR aims to gather all the data necessary for the safety assessment and consists in 10 sections.

Part B is the safety assessor’s conclusion on the safety of the product and consists of four sections.

The assessor must hold a diploma (e.g. pharmacy, toxicology) recognized by a Member State. Our experts are highly qualified to serve you and are used to draft CPSR on a daily basis.
Ensure the safety and the compliance of your products by entrusting EcoMundo.


As defined by the ICCR “The safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients is not a standardized procedure, but should be performed case-by-case basis using the best science. (..) The safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients involves a systematic stepwise approach that starts from conservative assumptions and includes refined approaches (…)”

The Safety assessment is the part A of the CPSR and is mandatory. It aims to prove that the cosmetic product is safe.

EcoMundo’s pharmacists and toxicologists are here to assist you and will take care of the drafting of your Safety Assessment. As a trustworthy Responsible Person, EcoMundo guarantees full compliance for your products throughout the European Market.


The labeling and packaging of your products is regulated by the Cosmetics Regulation. If the marketing process is highly important when it comes to the label and packaging of your product, some rules must be strictly observed. Depending on the country you export to, you’ll face different requirements with regards to translation.

EcoMundo will review all your labels and will provide you with a useful checklist in order to bring your artwork and pack into full compliance.

The making of cosmetic products claims as well as claim substantiation are mentioned in article 20 of Regulation 1223/2009 but also in a specific regulation dedicated to claims: EC 655/2013. This regulation aims to ensure that the information conveyed to the end users through the claims is useful, understandable and reliable. It must enable them to make informed decisions and to choose the product that best suits their needs and expectations.

Our experts are specialized in claims review and can help you save time and money by avoiding claims you should not be using in the first place.


The Cosmetics regulation No 1223/2009 requires that any company willing to place a cosmetic product on the market notify it online via the Cosmetics Products Notification Portal (CPNP) before doing so.

The CPNP is a website that only Responsible Persons and Authorities can use to access product’s information.

EcoMundo as a Responsible Person will take care of the whole process and register the products for you on the so-called CPNP.
