Responsible Person dashboard for cosmetics products


I’ve been seeing posts recently about items being marked DEFECTIVE, and one of the reasons might be that the ‘Responsible Person dashboard’ hasn’t been completed.

Can I ask, we sell cosmetics (face creams, cleansers, toners, serums etc), and according to CE marking is not required for cosmetics.

Yet, when I look on the Responsible Person dashboard it shows a brand we represent, however there are no ASINs listed.

Is this because they are classified as cosmetics?


From Google

businesses can only sell cosmetic products in the EU when a natural or legal person within the Union is designated as a ‘responsible person’ ; the responsible person must ensure the product meets all the relevant safety requirements under Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009.

Another seller had one this week for a factor 50 cream , its not just for CE products


Just another point regards the ‘Responsible Person’ as per The Responsible Person dashboard is changing, it says

now available to EU-based sellers and sellers fulfilling their own orders

Does this mean if we fulfill via FBA we are not affected?


no - you are actually more likely to be affected as being FBA you cannot stop sales to NI , whereas FBM you can
