MSDS Authoring

Portuguese authorities have issued a decree with plans to implement the European Union’s Cosmetics Regulation.

The decree that has been issued states that there are numerous risks to human health and with the increase in cosmetic use in the teenage market, it encouraged Portugal to draw upon the 2009 European Commissions Cosmetic Regulations.

Apart form implementing the specific rules from the cosmetics regulation, the Portuguese authorities intend to go further with the decree. The decree will make it compulsory for all health professionals and any professional that uses cosmetics to communicate to the consumer the serious undesirable effects to the competent authority, and would regulate the activity of players in the commercial and distribution chain. 

The decree bill comprises of 26 articles, that include regulations for import activity and the language on product labelling.

I just wanted to take a moment to say how we value the compliance service we have received from Nexreg. In the past two years our company has been faced with many challenges related to the sales of hazardous products in the US and Canada and Nexreg has been an excellent resource to help us ensure compliance to the ever changing regulatory environment.
