Regulations and Laws on Tattoo and Permanent Make-Up Colorants in Finland

There are no specific Laws and Regulations in Finland, but the dyes are monitored on the base of the Act of the Consumer Product and Services (Directive 2001/95/EY).

Also, the Government decree on information to be supplied in respect of consumer products and services (613/2004) also applies.

The general rule is: A consumer product must not represent a risk to health because of e.g. a flaw in its structure or composition or because of any false, misleading or inadequate information supplied..

Products safety surveillance has been transferred from the Consumer Agency to Tukes on 1.1.2010.

The EU resolution EU ResAP(2008)1 has not been implemented in the Finnish legislation.

We would like to thank the Safety Technology Authority (Tukes) in Helsinki for their kind assistance.

If you have any questions to the regulations mentioned please enquire directly at CTL and we will give you our support.
