Cosmetic Regulation – Consumer product safety

Cosmetic safety assessment

The Cosmetic Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, replacing the old cosmetics directive from July 2013, places an even greater focus on the cosmetic product safety report according to Annex I of that regulation.

FoBiG offers support:

  • for the compilation of the safety information (toxicological profiles, exposure assessment) for suppliers of raw materials and manufacturers of cosmetic products
  • and for preparing the cosmetic safety assessment for products according to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009.

In this context, we make use of our long-term experience in toxicological assessments and exposure estimation.

Consumer product safety

In addition, FoBiG offers support tailored to you needs with regard to consumer product safety, covering many different aspects. Due to our long-term experience in the risk characterisation of chemicals in consumer products under REACH as well as due to many different projects, e.g. for the Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra and the German Federal Environmental Agency, FoBiG possesses extensive experience, also for exceptional cases. Our services in this segment encompass substance- and product-specific assessments, for example in the following areas:

  • Toxicological assessment and exposure estimation for contaminants in textiles for the manufacturer or those placing these products on the market
  • Assessment of the migration behaviour of chemicals from consumer products, in cooperation with qualified laboratories, if required
  • Safety assessment of consumer products.
