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.
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.
