The European Green Deal sets a high ambition for a toxic-free environment leading to zero pollution. The Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS) adopted on 14 October 2020 outlines the Commission’s strategy for the sustainable and safe use of chemicals. The objectives of the Strategy are to better protect citizens and the environment against hazardous chemicals and encourage innovation for the development of safe and sustainable alternatives. To this end, the CSS includes an institutional commitment of the Commission to present a new legislative proposal to amend the Cosmetic Products Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009).
The revision focuses on cosmetic products, in particular on various actions and potential measures to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the current rules on cosmetic products. The aim of the revision is to ensure human health and the functioning of the internal market.
