On 11 July 2013, Regulation No 1223/2009 replaced Cosmetics Directive 76/768/EEC, which until now, ensured that products circulate freely within Europe whilst guaranteeing a high level of protection for consumers.
The provisions of Regulation 1223/2009 aim at ensuring that consumer health is protected and that they are well informed by monitoring the composition and labelling of products.
The Regulation also provides for the assessment of product safety and the prohibition of animal testing.
In the UK this Directive is presently implemented as the The Cosmetic Products (Safety) Regulations 2008 and the legislation is enforced by local Trading Standards Officers.
In July 2013, this UK regulation was superseded by the EC Cosmetics Regulation No. 1223/2009 which will be applied in all 28 EU countries (as of July 2013).
