EU REACH Regulation compliance solutions for the cosmetics and personal care product industries.
The REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals - 1907/2006) places compliance requirements on producers importing or manufacturing cosmetics and other personal care products in Europe. The obligations for cosmetics producers include, but are not limited to: pre-registration of substances and ingredients, chemical testing and evaluation, registration of substances, management of supply chain, management of downstream users, and possible restriction or notification requirements for chemicals in their products.
