Esschem Europe is certified to both ISO 22716:2007 Cosmetics GMP and ISO 9001:2015. As such our products are manufactured under GMP conditions and comply with the demands of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 on Cosmetic Products. We are also a member of the Cosmetic Toiletry & Perfumery Association.
Article 11 of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 requires the responsible person to create and maintain a Product Information File (PIF) for each cosmetic product placed on the market. This also applies to cosmetic products that have been notified under Directive 76/768/EEC. As these files contain confidential information, including the precise product formulation, summary documents are available to our customers with a signed agreement that the full PIF will be made readily accessible to the Competent Authority of a Member State upon request. All necessary information for notification on the CPNP is provided free of charge to our customers.
Esschem Europe comply with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 and subsequent amendments concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals (REACH). This is the system for controlling chemicals in the EU. It became law in the UK on 1st June 2007. Pre-registrations for all applicable substances have been confirmed, ensuring our continued supply. We also have ongoing communication with our suppliers and are continually evaluating our own registration needs to confirm that our products maintain conformity with the REACH regulation.
Esschem Europe also comply with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labeling and Packaging of substances and mixtures. The CLP Regulation adopts the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System on the classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS) across all European Union countries, including the UK. CLP entered into force on 20th January 2009.
