Sample text

The SCCP forms part of DG SANCO and owns the official mandate to provide opinions on questions concerning the safety of consumer products (non-food products intended for the Cosmetic Products and Their Current European Regulatory Framework 5 consumer). It is composed of independent scientists in the field of medicine, toxicology, pharmacy, dermatology, biology, chemistry, and other disciplines, collectively covering a wide range of expertise for this multidisciplinary committee [SCCP, 2006]. Together with the SCHER and the SCENIHR, the SCCP provides the Commission with sound scientific advice needed when preparing policy and proposals relating to consumer safety, public health and the environment.

These so-called ‘vertical’ legislations are depicted in figure 3. Since the current European legal context prohibits testing of finished cosmetic products on experimental animals, the impact of the above-mentioned Directives will individually be discussed with special focus on toxicological data generation and data availability potentially relevant for the safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients. When compiling all the knowledge on data generation and data availability through the different legislations, it is in certain cases possible to foresee the type and amount of toxicological data one can expect to find on a particular cosmetic ingredient.

For many academics, regulatory bodies dealing with cosmetics and scientists from the cosmetics industry the EU regulatory framework and the process of the safety assessment of cosmetics are a great puzzle, difficult to put together. Therefore, a monograph explaining the ‘mechanics’ of the EU regulations in the field of cosmetics and their practical application was badly needed. The present book, written by Prof. Vera Rogiers and Dr. Marleen Pauwels from the Department of XV Toxicology of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel fills this gap.
