The Technical Regulatory department operates at the interface between the EU legal texts and their implementation into practice by the industry. Whilst the main focus is on the EU Cosmetics Regulation (1223/2009), other laws that impact our industry operations are also covered.

The scientific and technical input of Cosmetics Europe is a key contribution in the European regulatory process.
Increasingly, Cosmetics Europe technical regulatory staff also represents the interests of its members throughout the world through the promotion of global regulatory compatibility and the removal of technical trade barriers.
