The CPNP is the online notification system created for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on Cosmetic Products.
This Regulation requires that the responsible persons and, under certain circumstances, the distributors of cosmetic products submit through the CPNP some information about the products they place or make available on the European market.
The CPNP is making this information available electronically to the Competent Authorities (for the purposes of market surveillance, market analysis, evaluation and consumer information) and to the Poison Centres or similar bodies established by Member States (for the purposes of medical treatment).
The CPNP is accessible as from 11 January 2012 to Competent Authorities, European Poison Centres and cosmetic products responsible persons and will become accessible to cosmetic products distributors as from 11 July 2013.
More information on CPNP, and in particular on how to connect, can be found in the CPNP User Manual
