Borderline between the legislation for cosmetics and biocides – endorsed-CA July 2013

This document is an attempt to provide guidance in the interest of consistency, and has been drafted by the Commission services responsible for cosmetic and biocidal products with the aim of finding an agreement with all or a majority of the Member States' Competent Authorities for such products. Please note, however, that Member States are not legally obliged to follow the approach set out in this document, since only the Court of Justice of the European Union can give authoritative interpretations on the contents of Union law.
