Smart products and electronics are becoming more common in the beauty and personal care industry, and the regulatory landscape and substances restrictions for these products differ greatly from those for cosmetics regulations. Companies can benefit greatly from the services of a third party with extensive regulatory experience.
Different regulations apply to smart products and electronics depending on their intended market. For example, compliance with RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU, restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, is required for the European market. According to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive, manufacturers need to provide technical documentation and carry out internal production control procedures to demonstrate RoHS compliance.
The EN IEC 63000:2018 standard, Technical documentation for the assessment of electrical and electronic products with respect to the restriction of hazardous substances, provides detailed specifications of the technical documentation the manufacturer must collect to declare compliance with applicable hazardous substances restrictions.
