Legal

Our main tasks consist of monitoring and implementing any legal developments and changes in legislation that may affect our sales countries. This includes the European cosmetics directive and the requirements of the US-American health authority FDA as well as working with national and international cosmetovigilance authorities. As a result, we are in close contact with the related departments (e.g., Marketing, Communication, Quality Assurance) to ensure that all relevant areas have access to the information and can take it into consideration. Regulatory issues lead to a number of legal topics, which are also handled by us. These include, for example, the preparation and processing of contracts. We also register up to 1,000 new products in the individual distribution countries each year and deal with all related customs and export matters.
