The Implementing Regulation on Cosmetic Products of Turkey is one of the areas where harmonization with the 1223/2009 (EC) Legislation is continuing as a requirement of the EU-Turkey Customs Union Agreement.
Accordingly, as the Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009/EC is frequently updated, the cosmetic product groups listed within the scope of this Regulation also change frequently.
For this reason, in order to ensure the harmonization with the 1223/2009 (EC) Legislation, the Annexes of the Implementing Regulation are rearranged and will be followed under the Communiqué on Cosmetic Ingredients.
In this regard, firstly, the Communiqué on Cosmetic Ingredients will enter into force and then the Implementing Regulation will enter into force accordingly.
The Communiqué on Cosmetic Ingredients applies to cosmetic products within the scope of the Implementing Regulation on Cosmetic Products published in the Official Gazette dated 23.05.2005 and numbered 25823.
The Implementing Regulation is applied to cosmetic products and this Implementing Regulation does not apply to a substance or mixture intended to be ingested, inhaled, injected, or implanted into the human body for the purposes set out in point (ö) of Article (4)(1).
