What is a UK Cosmetics Responsible Person?

To sell cosmetics in the United Kingdom, an UK Responsible Person (with offices in the UK) is legally mandatory. The United Kingdom formally left the European Union on January 31, 2020. Cosmetics companies had until December 31, 2020 (transition period) to comply with the requirements of the “The Product Safety and Metrology etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, Schedule 34”, the so-called “UK Cosmetics Regulation”.

So since January 31, 2020, any company wishing to sell cosmetic products in the United Kingdom, requires a Responsible Person (RP), established within the United Kingdom to be designated for each cosmetic product marketed within the UK territory. The role of the Responsible Person (often also called an UK Legal Representative or the UK Legal Representation), is to ensure continued product compliance with cosmetics regulations and safety regarding human health.

A Responsible Person is a legal or natural person who ensures the compliance of each cosmetic product in the UK market with relevant obligations as set forth in this Regulation. It can be the manufacturer (if based in the UK), the importer, the distributor or a third party located in the UK who has been designated by a written mandate.
