Product notification in the UK

CPNP is not sufficient!

Following the appointment of a UK RP, those products that are already notified on EU CPNP portal and are circulating on the UK market must be notified to the new UK Cosmetic notification database, which can be seen as the CPNP’s counterpart for the UK market. Naturally, all new products to-be-placed on the UK market also have to be notified to the new UK database.

By contrast to the immediate requirement for appointing a UK-based RP, the UK Draft Cosmetic Regulation foresees a grace period of 90 days for UK Notifications, starting from 1 January, 2021.

The new UK database and the EU’s CPNP features a download/reupload mechanism whereby information and documents can be swiftly transposed from the latter to the former. All UK RPs had a deadline on 31 December, 2020 to have downloaded, from the EU CPNP, everything that they intended to reupload to the new UK Cosmetic notification database.

The new UK Cosmetic notification database requires the following information:

  • Product’s name and category
  • Product’s formulation
  • The UK-based RP’s name and address (where the PIF will have to be made available) + name and contact details of a natural person representing the RP.

By being both a UK and an EU RP, however, Obelis maintained access to the CPNP after this deadline and can assist you with the transposition of your products’ Notifications and accompanying documentation after 31 December, 2020. This is one of the added benefits of appointing Obelis UK as your UK-based professional RP, as we are in the unique position to represent your products in both markets as your one-stop-shop RP and regulatory consultant.
