PARIS — The European Parliament approved Tuesday new rules on cosmetics safety in the European Union.
The 27 sets of national legislation making up the old EU cosmetics directive dating from 1976 — and last updated in 2003 — was replaced with a single regulation applicable in all member states starting 42 months after it appears in the EU Official Journal, which is expected in the months to come. Certain parts of the rules pertaining to nanomaterials and substances in cosmetics that are carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction, or CMR substances, will apply from an earlier stage.
