The CPNP will allow the cosmetic industry to submit information regarding products they are placing on the EU market. This information is vital to poison centres, to enable them to react quickly to help callers in case of poisoning, and also to national authorities to enable better market surveillance.
The CPNP was created for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, which replaced the Cosmetics Directive, with the provisions of the new regulation being applicable from 11th July 2013. The ban and timetable aimed at phasing out animal testing, which were added to the Cosmetics Directive by the �seventh amendment� were not modified by the replacement of the Cosmetics Directive.
