The Product Information File (PIF) is a key strategic document that is necessary to place cosmetic products in the European market. Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 requires that a PIF must be available to competent authorities for inspection within 48 hours of their request and must be complete, up- to-date, and aligned with the latest EU standards. A PIF is mandatory for ten years, for every cosmetic product placed on the market within the European Union (EU). Some of the key components that a product information file should contain are:

  • A description of the cosmetic product
  • The cosmetic product safety report
  • A description of the method of manufacturing and a statement on compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
  • Proof of the effect claimed for the cosmetic product data on any animal testing performed
