Registration of Cosmetics in Europe
All products entering the market of the European Union must be registered at the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP) prior to their distribution and marketing.

The cosmetics registration procedure in Europe is intended to secure the safety of the consumer and to ensure an internal market for cosmetics.
The European Union has defined a regulatory framework for the cosmetics market in Europe and international trade relations in order to promote innovation and competitiveness while maintaining the quality of the cosmetics and consumer safety.
Cosmetics manufacturers, who intend to market their products in the European Union, have to make sure that their products are tested by experts and are safe for use, before they can start selling and distributing.
The European cosmetics legislation defines the EU countries as responsible for monitoring the cosmetics market at national level.
