EU Responsible Person

All cosmetic products sold in the European Union must comply with the EU Cosmetics Regulation.

If you want to sell your cosmetics in the European Union and EEA, you need to know that:

  • All non-EU manufacturers must designate an EU-based Responsible Person
  • EU manufacturers also can designate another entity as their Responsible Person

Obelis acts as your Responsible Person (RP), makes sure you are meeting all EU regulatory requirements, and guides you through the European market.
