CE.way Regulatory Consultants, an Irish based company providing cosmetics regulatory and testing services, such as EU cosmetics responsible person service, product information file preparation, safety assessments (CPSR), stability, challenge and efficacy testing, has set up a new office in London last week.
A new office was set up in light of the upcoming Brexit, which is scheduled to happen on 29th March 2019. CE.way is acting as the EU cosmetics responsible person for many companies from around the world, many of whom sell their cosmetic products also in the UK.
In order to be able to continue serving those clients and in order to help other cosmetic companies gain regulatory compliance and seamless entry to both the EU and UK without having to deal with multiple service providers, the decision has been made to set up CE.way Regulatory Consultants UK Ltd.
The UK based company will offer full support to cosmetics companies wanting to achieve regulatory compliance in the UK post-Brexit.
What changes will Brexit bring to the cosmetics industry? A “no deal” scenario seems closer than ever after the recent rejection of the proposed Brexit agreement by the UK Parliament, although other options, such as additional negotiations, a new referendum or even no Brexit at all, remain possible. If Brexit takes place, the UK will be considered a third country on March 30, 2019.
The EU Commission has recently published a Notice to stakeholders: Withdrawal of the United Kingdom and EU rules in the field of cosmetic products, and the UK has, on the other hand, published a document called Appointing nominated persons to your business if there’s no Brexit deal.
Combining the guidelines and requirements mentioned in both of these documents, we can conclude the following:
Cosmetics producers, importers, distributors and responsible persons, therefore, have to get ready for the forthcoming changes. Contact CE.way for advice on how to prepare for these changes.
