EU Manufacturer

Under the EC 1223/2009 the European Manufacturer is, by definition, responsible to fulfill the obligations under the regulation for the products placed, under his name, onto the European Market.

EC 1223/2009 article 4.3
“For a cosmetic product manufactured within the Community, and not subsequently exported and imported back into the Community, the manufacturer established within the Community shall be the responsible person.”

What obligations is he responsible for? The European manufacturer as Responsible Person is responsible for all obligations under the EC 1223/2009 for a Cosmetic product:

EC 1223/2009 article 5.1
“Responsible persons shall ensure compliance with Articles 3, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, Article 19(1),(2)and (5), as well as Articles 20, 21, 23 and 24.”

In case the European manufacturer is having difficulties to understand the regulatory maze to compliance and as such unable to fulfill the obligations under the law for his Cosmetics? The solution resides in the EC 1223/2009:

EC 1223/2009 article 4.5
“The manufacturer may designate, by written mandate, a person established within the Community as the responsible person who shall accept in writing.”

The solution provided by the EC 1223/2009 is to delegate your responsibilities to a professional EU based company, able to fulfill all the obligations under the law under a mutually signed legal mandate. The designation will cover all products manufactured by you.
