COMMISSION TECHNICAL DOCUMENT ON CLAIMS – ARE YOU READY FOR THE JULY DEADLINE? 

Synopsis
Despite the strict legislative framework governing cosmetic products in the UK and EU that ensures consumer safety, the trend in ‘free from’ claims, usually linked with particular ingredients, has grown over recent years. This has been raised as an issue by several Member States, and the European Commission identified ‘free from’ claims as one area of concern in its comprehensive report on cosmetic claims in 2016.  From this the Commission’s Technical Document on cosmetic claims has been updated to address ‘free from’ claims to provide Member States with enforcement guidance and the industry with best practice on the use of such claims. The presentation will highlight the key aspects of the Technical Document, whilst analysing the reputational damage the industry has already faced due to ‘free from’ claims.  The session will also introduce the tools that CTPA has developed to help companies understand the Technical Document and reconsider their approach to these claims.
