Israel drafts EU-like Cosmetics Regulation

On 23 Oct 2013 Israel notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) Committee on Technical Barriers to Trade of its intention to develop an EU-like cosmetics regulation.

Similar to the EU Regulation on Cosmetic Products, the Israeli Pharmacists' Regulations 5773-2013 (תקנות הרוקחים (תמרוקים), התשע"ג) addresses nanomaterials in cosmetics; it imposes labelling of nanomaterials and pre-market notification for cosmetics containing nanomaterials at least six months prior to marketing.

A safety report will also be submitted to the authorities and shall also contain information on the ‘size of particles, including nanoparticles’.
