Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP)


The CPNP  is a free of charge online notification system created for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009  of the European Parliament and of the Council on cosmetic products .

When a product has been notified in the CPNP there is no need for any further notification at national level in the European Union.

Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 (Article 13) requires that the responsible persons and, under certain circumstances, the distributors of cosmetic products submit through the CPNP some information about the products they place or make available on the European market.

The CPNP is making this information available electronically to the Competent Authorities (for the purposes of market surveillance, market analysis, evaluation and consumer information) and to the Poison Centres or similar bodies established by Member States (for the purposes of medical treatment).

The CPNP is accessible to Competent Authorities, European Poison Centres, cosmetic products responsible persons and distributors.

The CPNP also contains a separate module (Article 16) to be used by responsible persons to submit some specific information about cosmetic products containing nanomaterials. This notification has to be done in addition to the notification under Article 13. If the European Commission has concerns regarding the safety of a nanomaterial, it may request the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety to perform a risk assessment.
