CPNP - Cosmetic Products Notification Portal

Cosmetic product

Cosmetic product  - any substance or mixture intended to be placed in contact with the external parts of the human body (epidermis, hair system, nails, lips and external genital organs) or with the teeth and the mucous membranes of the oral cavity with a view exclusively or mainly to cleaning them, perfuming them, changing their appearance, protecting them, keeping them in good condition or correcting body odours.

The cosmetic products notification portal (CPNP) is a free of charge online notification system created for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 on cosmetic products. When a product has been notified in the CPNP, there is no need for any further notification at national level within the EU.

Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009Search for available translations of the preceding  (Article 13) requires that the responsible persons and, under certain circumstances, the distributors of cosmetic products submit some information about the products they place or make available on the European market through the CPNP.

The CPNP is making this information available electronically to

  • competent authorities (for the purposes of market surveillance, market analysis, evaluation and consumer information)
  • poison centres or similar bodies established by EU countries (for the purposes of medical treatment)

The CPNP is accessible to

  • competent authorities
  • European poison centres
  • cosmetic products responsible persons
  • distributors of cosmetic products
