EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
The principal purpose of these Regulations is to up-date the law in relation to the manufacture, marketing and sale of cosmetic products by the implementation of Commission Directives 2002/34/EC, 2003/1/EC and 2003/16/EC relating to cosmetic products.
The purposes of the changes are to improve the safety of cosmetic products being placed on the market. They have been introduced following safety assessments carried out by the EU Scientific Committee on Cosmetic Products and Non Food Products (SCCNFP). Amongst the changes that are being introduced in these Regulations is the prohibition of twenty eight fragrance ingredients that must not be used as such in cosmetic products.
