This column is the last in a three- part series on the European Union’s (EU) Regulation No. 1223/2009,1 which was published on Dec. 22, 2009. This series began in the August 2010 issue ofCosmetics & Toiletries magazine with a focus on the regulation’s cosmetic safety reports,2 followed by a January 2011 column reviewing its additional changes,save for the Responsible Person’s (RP) obligations. The RP’s role is so complex that it warrants its own column, which is presented here.

The concept of the RP is not new, as Japan established this concept in 2002 (effective 2005) for cosmetics, drugs, quasi-drugs and medical devices. Based on Japanese regulations, the RP must be located in Japan and is responsible for ensuring that all cosmetics comply with regulations; the EU has taken a similar approach to ensure total compliance with its new regulation.
