Transition period for cosmetic labels in the UK

Extension of transition period: on the 14th of November 2022, the Government placed legislation before Parliament extending the transition period for UKCA marking until 31 December 2024 and the provisions for UKCA labeling, importer information, and responsible persons’ information until 31 December 2027, provided the EU responsible person details are included.

This will enable existing stocks to make their way through the supply chain and reflects the typical shelf life of a cosmetics and business’ labeling cycles.
