Background:

For timely assessment of the dossiers submitted in support of safety of cosmetics ingredients, it is of utmost importance that they are as complete as possible and contain data that are adequate, relevant, and of suitable quality for use in risk assessment. In this context, this document provides checklists for the parameters that are essential for the SCCS evaluation of cosmetic ingredients, including nanomaterials in cosmetics. The main purpose of these checklists is to enable both the Applicant and the SCCS to quickly assess if the dossiers are complete and to prevent submissions that are incomplete or contain inadequate/irrelevant data. This should streamline the safety evaluation process and save time and resources for both the Applicants and the SCCS.
