The Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP) is a notification system created for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 on cosmetic products. When a product has been notified in the CPNP, there is no need for any further notification at national level within the EU. Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 (Article 13) requires that the responsible persons and, under certain circumstances, the distributors of cosmetic products submit some information about the products they place or make available on the European market through the CPNP. The CPNP notification was made mandatory on July 11th, 2013. Any cosmetic product must be systematically notified on this portal prior to being placed on the EU market.
