Compliance

Hand Wipes

Any wet wipes that are intended for use wholly or partly for cleaning hands must comply with the Cosmetic Directive EC1223/2009.

The purpose of the directive is to ensure a high level of safety to human health.

The directive covers areas such as restrictions on substances used, label compliance and claims made, microbiological testing, and skin-patch testing. A product information file (PIF) must be held be a responsible person, and the product must be notified via the EU portal.

Food Production Area Wipes

Surface wipes used within the food and catering environment must comply with the requirements of the Biocidal Products Regulations (BPR) Regulation 528/2012.

The Regulation concerns the placing on the market and use of biocidal products, which are used to protect humans, animals, materials or articles against harmful organisms, like pests or bacteria, by the action of the active substances contained in the biocidal product.
