Swiss regulation for cosmetic products - transitional period ends on 30.04.2021

On 1 May 2017, the Ordinance of the FDHA (Federal Department of Home Affairs) on cosmetic products came into force in Switzerland. This was drawn up for harmonisation with EU Regulation 1223/2009. The requirements at European level were almost exclusively adopted within this regulation.

WESSLING provides advice on implementing the German cosmetics regulations with respect to decorative cosmetics.

Thus, an individual safety assessment must be carried out for each cosmetic product* and a product information file must be available. The minimum requirements for a safety assessment are prescribed by law. Only qualified safety assessors may issue a corresponding document.

The transitional provisions for the marketing of cosmetic products ends on 30 April 2021.

In order to comply with the statutory provisions that will become mandatory from 1 May 2021, WESSLING offers you comprehensive services, such as safety reports, PID, CPNP notification.

* does not apply to cosmetic products that are handmade and distributed locally, on a small scale (bazaar, school festival or similar situation); cosmetic products for children under 3 years of age and products that are applied near the eyes or on mucous membranes are excluded.
