British cosmetics trade group CTPA recently issued a statement reassuring its members that the UK’s decision to leave the European Union would not affect the “strict safety laws that govern [the UK’s] cosmetics products.” It noted that the transition process and exit from the EU is expected to take years, and that the current legal structure—set by the EU—will remain in place during the transition. According to CTPA, compliance with the Cosmetic Products Regulation will continue to be mandatory for cosmetics sold in the UK. See CTPA StatementJune 24, 2016.
