Formula and Labelling Review​

This is one of the first steps of any cosmetic regulation process. A preliminary analysis is essential where a technical team reviews if there are any prohibited or restricted ingredients in the cosmetic product, so any future complication with the Health Authorities can be avoided.

The labelling helps to inform and protect consumers to prevent adverse reactions and misuse. Furthermore, having a non-compliance label may lead to recall of products from the market.

The Responsible Declaration of Import​

Cosmeservice can be your importer in Spain using our own Responsible Declaration of Import for cosmetic products. We are authorized to import cosmetics from outside the European Union to Spain and we manage the process with the Spanish customs as the technical responsible. We manage all the steps of the import, ensuring that the procedure follows a logical and correct order. This way, the possible incidents, kick-backs or release of goods under customs controls will be avoided.

Trademark registration

The trademark registration is a legal process in which a particular symbol, logo, name, or phrase used to identify a product or a service is protected by law. This step ensures that the owner of the trademark has Exclusivity to use the mark and prevent others form using it without permission.

The most well-known organizations that could do this registration are:

  • The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO)
  • The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)
  • The UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO).

We can offer support reviewing that there is not any trademark registered before with the same or similar name that could be interfering with the registration of the new trademark. 

Cosmetic Regulations: Canada & Switzerland

Canada

As other markets, cosmetic products that are sold in Canadian territory must comply with requirements and guidelines set by the Canadian FDA. All the products marketed in this country must be safe and not be a risk for human health. In addition, the cosmetics products are subject to comply with the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act and the Canadian Environmental Protection Act.

Switzerland​

Switzerland’s ‘Cassis de Dijon principle’ allows EU-compliant cosmetics in their market. Compliance is the responsibility of the manufacturer, importer, or a Swiss agent, not the EU RP.

EU PIFs are valid with minor ingredient changes. All products need a complete PIF, except artisanal cosmetics for children. CPNP notification is sufficient; no additional notification or CFS is required for EU-compliant products.

Cosmetic regulations in Canada and the USA have some similarities, but there are also some differences. Both countries have regulatory authorities responsible for ensuring the safety of cosmetic products and both require safety assessments of products before they can be placed on the market.
