Requirements to import cosmetic from EU member state

Recommended Posts

I  want to private label and import cosmetic products from EU member state (Eastern Europe) into Netherlands. I understand there is a list of regulatory requirements to fulfill. What I am struggling with is to find the "specifc" list of documents to ask from my supplier such that I can notify this product in CPNP. Do I have to ask for Product Information Dossier (PIF) only or there are some other documents required to notify CPNP. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Beste Learner,

There are a lot of regulations en rules before you can import cosmetics in the Netherlands.

For instance: you must comply with the European Cosmetics Regulation and the Dutch 2011 Commodities Act Decree cosmetic products.


On business.gov you can find a lot of information and direct links about Manufacturing or selling cosmetic products in the Netherlands.

Thanks for the comment. For Netherlands, is it a requirement to have labels only in Dutch or it can also be in English?

In the Netherlands the Dutch language on the label is required. However you are allowed to use multiple languages on the same label
