Fashion Law

Garrigues has renewed its collaboration with the Official State Gazette Government Agency, this time to prepare the new Fashion Industry Electronic Code. The publication compiles all the laws and regulations applicable to the fashion industry, a sector growing at a dizzying pace and subject to constant structural changes that deeply affect how it is regulated.
The European Union has one of the safest legal frameworks in the world, thanks mainly to the Cosmetics Regulation (Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of November 30, 2009). The purpose of the Regulation is twofold. Firstly, it aims to increase the safety of these products in order to ensure greater protection for European consumers. Secondly, it intends to remove barriers to intra-community trade by establishing a common framework for the entire EU. With this aim in mind, composition and labelling were unified, traceability requirements were tightened up and obligations were established to report serious undesirable effects.
