Delimitation criteria for cosmetic products

The guidelines for differentiating cosmetic products from therapeutic products and biocidal products are live

The German version (PDF - 1.0MB) of the guidelines for differentiating cosmetic products from therapeutic products and biocidal products went live on the website of the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office on 2 February 2021, and the English version (PDF - 1.2MB) went live on 18 March. The paper gives an overview of the definitions of the individual product groups, the situation in Switzerland and in Europe, and the comparison between these regions. There is also a flow chart to clarify the marketability of a product under the respective legislation. Finally, selected issues are presented to clarify the previously theoretical approach.
