Parliamentary questions
27 February 2013
E-002259-13
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Diogo Feio (PPE)

 Subject:  Public health and safety — nail varnish
 Answer(s) 

The contents of various cosmetic products, such as nail varnish, are immediately accessible and open to manipulation by people visiting shops, even if they are not purchasing the product. This exposure, which is possible because the products are not sealed, raises clear public health and safety issues.

I would therefore ask the Commission:
Does it not consider that access to the contents of cosmetic products on the part of people who are not purchasing them could pose a threat to public health and safety?
Does it not think that there is a particular justification for special care with indiscriminate access to this type of product, which is in great consumer demand?
What measures has it taken or does it plan to take in this regard?
