Cosmetics Europe is a non-profit making international organization whose purpose is promoting the cosmetic industry and furthering its scientific, technical, economic and legal objectives.
This purpose is achieved mainly by:
a) the joint study of scientific data on substances used in perfumery, cosmetics, toiletries and hair products, in particular data relating to their effects on human health and safety as well as on the environment; the collection and dissemination of the required scientific information to its members and to appropriate international organizations;
b) the collection and study of relevant laws and regulations applicable to the industry; the dissemination of such information to its members and to appropriate international organizations;
c) fostering transparent and reliable relationships with public authorities and stakeholders, to best communicate the social, economic and scientific relevance of the cosmetics industry in Europe;
d) contributing to the shaping of workable and fair policy frameworks regulating the European cosmetics industry;
e) addressing members' needs in an efficient and transparent way through timely information and decision making and focusing on issues and activities relevant for the industry.
Cosmetics Europe works closely with the European Institutions to achieve balanced policies and legislation. Its aim is to provide a regulatory environment that encourages innovation and supports a strong and competitive cosmetics industry in Europe. Files followed by Cosmetics Europe relate in particular to the implementation of the Cosmetics Products regulation, regulatory developments on cosmetics ingredients, consumer safety, consumer information, environmental and chemical issues. As an example and more recently (2014-2015), Cosmetics Europe has in particularly worked on legislative files regarding the adoption of the Consumer Product Safety package and the Market Surveillance package, the adoption of the Access and Benefit Sharing Regulation and the Proposal for a Regulation on medical devices. Cosmetics Europe regularly submits on behalf of its members observations to the EU institutions on legislative proposals relevant for its members’ activities. Recent position papers in 2014 and 2015 include the responses to the European public consultation on fragrance allergens in the framework of Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 and to the European Commission public consultation on defining criteria for identifying endocrine disruptors in the context of the implementation of the plant protection product regulation and the biocidal products regulation.
For the purpose of its science research, Cosmetics Europe is following very closely the EU Research and Innovation program Horizon 2020 - the biggest EU research program ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). More particularly, Cosmetics Europe collaborates with the Commission in the SEURAT-1 (Safety Evaluation Ultimately Replacing Animal Testing) research initiative with a budget of 50 million euros to try to fill current gaps in scientific knowledge and accelerate the development of non-animal test methods. SEURAT-1 focuses on the complex area of repeated dose toxicity. Additionally, Cosmetics Europe is partnering with the European Commission in the wider framework of the European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA) - an unprecedented voluntary collaboration between the European Commission, European trade associations, and companies from seven industry sectors. The partners are committed to pooling knowledge and resources to accelerate the development, validation and acceptance of alternative approaches to further the replacement, reduction and refinement (3Rs) of animal use in regulatory testing.
Finally, Cosmetics Europe works closely with the EU institutions on the elaboration and the adoption of technical standards such as ISO / CEN and on the promotion of international convergence of worldwide cosmetics regulations, in particular through its participation in ICCR (International Cooperation on Cosmetics Regulation). Cosmetics Europe also keeps a close relationship with the Commission on external trade related issues in connection with the activities of its members.
Cosmetics Europe organizes yearly events to promote the industry and provide in-depth scientific and regulatory updates to stakeholders. The International Scientific and Regulatory Conference: "Cosmetics at the Crossroads of Science and Regulation" is being organized on a yearly basis since 2014. The conference is a two-day scientific & regulatory fee-based conference focusing on key developments in science and regulation that can directly impact EU and global cosmetics legislation across the value chain. European institutions officials typically participate at this event as invited speakers or in the audience to remain updated on topics of relevance. For further information see https://cosmeticseurope.eu/news-a-events/events.html
In connection with the Cosmetics Europe annual General Assembly, Cosmetics Europe each year organizes an open Forum (free) that brings together member companies and associations with external industry stakeholders to openly discuss areas of common interest through presentations, panel discussions and interactive Q&As.

Cosmetics Europe collaborates with the Commission in the SEURAT-1 (Safety Evaluation Ultimately Replacing Animal Testing) research initiative with a budget of 50 million euros to try to fill current gaps in scientific knowledge and accelerate the development of non-animal test methods.

For specific dossiers/actions, Cosmetics Europe is relying – on a temporary basis – on membership staff to perform some representation duties. For those specific activities no cost, nor resources are accounted within section 9.
Since 2005, Cosmetics Europe is actively engaged in the EPAA initiative (European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing) initiated by the European Commission and several other industry sectors. EPAA aims to identify optimised approaches on testing and risk assessment strategies in existing and upcoming legislation and their implementation so as to avoid double and redundant, as well as unnecessary testing.
To fulfill its partnership obligations, Cosmetics Europe has an annual cost of 15.000 euros, including detachment of resources on a permanent basis.
