Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR)

Prepare a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR) for your products with SGS.

Cosmetic Products Regulation EC 1223/2009 requires a detailed safety assessment – the CPSR – before products can be marketed within the EU.

Our cosmetic safety assessors work with you to collate and present the details required for the CPSR. Following introduction of the cosmetic product regulation, the CPSR comprises two parts, cosmetic product safety information and a cosmetic product safety assessment.

The CPSR in more detail

Part A: Cosmetic Product Safety Information
This section requires product information and test data. If you have the relevant data available, we can conduct the Cosmetic Safety Assessment. If not, we can conduct the necessary testing and supply data accordingly.

You will need:

  • Quantitative and qualitative composition
  • Physical/chemical characteristics and stability
  • Microbial quality
  • Impurities, traces in the product and information on the packaging material
  • Normal and foreseeable use
  • Exposure to the product
  • Exposure to the ingredients
  • Toxicological profile of the ingredients
  • Undesirable effects of the product
  • Other

We offer all testing services at our fully equipped, state of the art facilities (in Europe, Asia & the USA).

Part B: Cosmetic Product Safety Assessment
A safety assessor’s expert opinion as to why the product is safe to be placed on the market.
