Cosmetic Tools – Objects


Tools, sponges, patches, brushes, etc., are considered ‘general products’ and more specifically ‘objects’.

Cosmetic tools (objects) fall under the scope of the General Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC.

Also, objects are required to be compliant and labeled according to the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation ((EC) No 1272/2008).
This latter piece of legislation is implemented the same way in all EU Member States and requires manufacturers, importers or downstream users of substances or mixtures to classify, label and package their hazardous chemicals appropriately before placing them on the market.

BIORIUS can verify that your objects are safe, properly labeled and ready to be placed on the EU Market without taking any risk!

The Regulatory Process

The regulatory process for objects consists of a formula review, a safety assessment, and a label review, following the above-mentioned regulation.

The Responsible Person for this product category is the importer.

The process is thus divided into two phases:

  • Formula Review & Safety Assessment: Includes the hazard classification and labeling, packaging information, risk assessment and warnings.
  • Label & Claims Review: Evaluation of the product label (required information, symbols and claims).


Upon conclusion of the evaluation, a report is issued, which highlights the following points:

  • Required elements
  • Presence of required elements (primary packaging, secondary packaging & leaflet)
  • Symbols
  • Claims
  • Substantiation
  • Expert comments – strategic recommendations for updating the labels
