When it comes to product labelling, the EU has strict rules. We will assist you in making sure that your labels are correct.
The Product Information File (PIF) is a mandatory compilation of technical documentation required for each cosmetic product to be placed on the market.
Each cosmetic product placed on the market has to have a designated responsible person. This person ensures that products comply with the rules set out in the Regulation. In particular, they ensure compliance with requirements relating to human health, safety and consumer information. They maintain a product information file accessible to the public authorities. LaFirgo can take this out of your hands and be your Responsible Person.
Differences in regulatory frameworks can have particular significance for so-called ‘borderline products’. The term ‘borderline products’ refers to those products that at first sight might be difficult to classify into one product category or another, either in one country or in different countries.
The Regulation (Article 13) requires that the responsible persons and, under certain circumstances, the distributors of cosmetic products submit certain information, via the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP) about the products they place or make available on the European market. As part of our service we can register your cosmetics products.
