The Product Information File (PIF) is the mandatory compilation of technical documentation required for each cosmetic product to be placed on the market. According to the EU Cosmetic Regulation 1223/2009/EC, the elements of the PIF include but are not limited to:
The PIF is kept by the Responsible Person
at the address specified on the label (must indicate its address within the European Community) for 10 years after the last batch was put on the market. The PIF should be held in a safe storage location, readily accessible in electronic or other format.
The RP also ensures the language of the PIF is easily understood by Competent Authorities and updates the document when necessary.
