A United Kingdom SME offers advisory and training services covering due diligence testing and support for product licensing to manufacturers, distributors and retailers of personal care products wishing to exploit opportunities in European markets. Utilising its unique software platform, comprehensive data base and unparalleled experience and expertise, the SME invites partners to enter into services agreements.
An SME based in the East of England has developed a high quality and authoritative, due diligence advisory and reporting service for manufacturers, distributors and retailers of personal care products. Such products include cosmetics, dental care products (such as toothpaste) and shampoos. In order for such personal care products to be legally traded, suppliers need to allocate a Responsible Person who accepts the responsibility of safety and post market surveillance of the product and obtain a product license. To obtain such a license requires the submission of significant evidence which is both onerous and costly for the supplier, especially if they do not have the resources of a major multinational organisation. Utilising its own, unique software platform and comprehensive database, the SME is able to offer a full advisory service for such suppliers to place their products on the EU market in a short period of time. Coupled to the software platform and database are the benefits of the industry leading knowledge and expertise of the company’s founder and the partnership established with leading toxicological and microbiological testing laboratories. Specifically the following services are offered: • Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR). • Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP) registration. • Acting as the legal “Responsible Person”. • Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) advice and reporting. • Provision of product labeling advice and recommendations. • Bespoke training, to support clients’ needs at every stage of EU compliance. Manufacturers, retailers, distributors and any other personal care product suppliers are therefore invited to engage through services agreements with the SME.
Innovations and advantages
• Highly qualified and experienced expertise that leads to authoritative and sound reporting and advice. • Unique software and cloud database platform for production of high quality, comprehensive reports. • Full liability insurance cover. • Bespoke tailored service to meet individual clients’ specific requirements. • Quick turnaround time.
Current stage of development
