What is the GB CLP Regulation and Why is it Relevant for Cosmetics?

Post-Brexit, the UK set in place a domestic Classification, Labelling and Packaging (GB CLP) Regulation to ensure a high level of protection of health and the environment.  GB CLP requires manufacturers, importers or downstream users of substances or mixtures to classify, label and package chemicals appropriately before placing them on the market.

Finished cosmetic products (ready for sale to the consumer) are exempt from the requirements of the GB CLP Regulation.  However, cosmetic ingredients as raw materials or cosmetic mixtures (such as bulk of a cosmetic that is not in the finished state) fall under the remit of the GB CLP Regulation.

CTPA is holding a webinar to provide companies with an overview of how chemicals and cosmetic ingredients are managed under relevant GB legislation.  The management process of chemicals under the GB CLP Regulation is one of the topics covered by this webinar!

The webinar will be held on 29 June 2022 at 14.00-15.30; it will be free for CTPA members and available for a payable fee of £50 for non-members of the association.
