Skin care products are classified as cosmetics, so they fall under the scope of TR CU 009/2011. This technical regulation establishes requirements for the production, storage, and transportation of skin cosmetics.
Under this TR CU, manufacturers, importers and distributors of skin care products are required to issue a declaration of conformity or a certificate of state registration (SGR). These are the two main documents confirming the quality of cosmetic products. In addition, an entrepreneur can issue a voluntary certificate.

Certification of skin care products is necessary to control the quality and safety of this type of product. This helps to prevent low-quality cosmetics from entering the market, which can harm consumers.

The term for issuing declarations, certificates and SGRs usually takes no more than 2-3 weeks.
