Responsible Person profile:
You must select a Responsible Person profile to notify cosmetic products into CPNP.
When creating an organisation with Responsible Person profile in SAAS, the name of the organisation must correspond to the Responsible Person details visible on the cosmetic products labelling.
Who is the Responsible Person?
- If a product is manufactured in the EU (and not subsequently exported and imported back into the EU) and marketed in the EU, the EU manufacturer is estimated being a Responsible Person (unless another person established in the EU has been mandated).
- If a product is manufactured in the EU (and not subsequently exported and imported back into the EU) and marketed in the EU, but the manufacturer is established outside the EU, then a Responsible Person established in the EU must be appointed.
- The distributor shall be the Responsible Person where he places a cosmetic product on the market under his name or trademark or modifies a product already placed on the market in such a way that compliance with the applicable requirements may be affected.
- For imported cosmetic products manufactured in a non-EU country, each importer shall be the Responsible Person for the specific cosmetic products he places in the market and has to request a Responsible Person profile (unless another person established in the EU has been mandated).
You must select a distributor profile only if you want to distribute a product in an EU Member State and you translate, on your own initiative, any element of the labelling of that product in order to comply with national law. Then, you have to submit through CPNP some information related to the products you distribute. A distributor cannot notify products in CPNP, only link his/her notification to existing products; the products in question have to be registered in the CPNP by the Responsible Person beforehand.
Delegate for nanomaterials profile:
Delegate for nanomaterials is a specific profile referring exclusively to notifications under Article 16. The role of the Delegate for nanomaterials is to enter, on request of a Responsible Person, certain data for the notification of products containing non-regulated nanomaterials. They cannot notify cosmetic products.
