Responsible Person

Since January 1, 2021, it is necessary to have the figure of a Responsible Person established in the UK to be able to sell your products in the country. For example, a company that sells its products in Europe and the United Kingdom will need a Responsible Person for each economic area.

The Responsible Person is in charge of auditing the cosmetic product dossiers and the safety evaluation, as well as the rest of the technical information in order to ensure compliance and conformity with legislation and avoid serious unwanted effects on users.

It is a mandatory document that must be provided by the manufacturer or the person responsible for marketing a cosmetic.

This document contains all the information necessary to guarantee the safety of the product, such as its composition, its method of use, the results of the tests carried out, among other relevant data. The preparation of the PIF is essential to ensure that the product is safe and complies with current legislation.

The SCPN is the official British notification portal where UK authorities register cosmetic products BEFORE they are placed on the market. This SCPN registration is a legal obligation present in the United Kingdom Cosmetic Regulations (EC) No. 1223/2009 (UKCR)
