Cosmetics compliant in 5 steps

In choosing your suppliers and ingredients, in developing your formulations, in deciding on your product positioning and claims, and in rolling out your sales and distribution, it is important to understand the product compliance requirements in the markets where you products will be sold. And to assess for compliance early on in the process.

Maximum support through a clear and transparant approach

Independent of the stage your products are in, we provide maximum support on product compliance through a clear and transparant 5 step approach. We start with a free Prescan of your portfolio to be clear on the possibilities, lead-times and the needed resources. By appointing TRC as your compliance partner, your Responsible Person (EU/UK) and/or your US Agent (for non-US based manufacturing facilities) you will ensure continued services for as long as your products are available and sold in the EU, the UK and/or the USA.


Contact us and have your portfolio pre-assessed for free! We will look into your needs, your product formulations, your product label and marketing materials, and discuss your product dossiers.

PIF building

We will jointly create a fully compliant product information file (PIF). TRC will provide clear instructions, templates and checklists for your R&D, manufacturing, QC and procurement departments to ensure that all required data, documents and test reports are timely and correctly included in the PIF.

Regulatory compliance & safety assessment

Our expert team of toxicologists, chemists and experienced safety assessors will perform the regulatory compliance and safety assessment in-house. Once completed, the Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR) and the regulatory content briefs for your labels and claims will be issued.

Label and claim review

We will deliver the regulatory content briefs for your labels and claims including the (INCI) ingredients listing, and will review your artwork design and marketing materials to avoid cumbersome post launch relabeling and/or costly reworks.

Product notification/Product listing

Notification/listing of your products is the last short step towards market readiness. We will notify your products as your Responsible Person (EU/UK), list your products with the FDA (USA), or assist you to do so under your own company name.

Your product is now market ready!

EU/UK Responsible Person &
US Agent/compliance partner

The compliance and safety of each cosmetic product has to be monitored and continuously managed with all relevant information readily available for competent authorities. TRC will do so as your Responsible Person (RP) in the EU/UK, and your US Agent/compliance partner in the USA.
