What to note for China’s latest Cosmetics regulation reform?

China’s Cosmetic Hygiene Supervision Regulation was first published in 1989 and came into force in 1990. After thirty years, this regulation was, according to commentator, “very much ripe to finally bow out,” and June 29, 2020, Order No. 727 was signed by the State Council, officially publishing the long-awaited final version of its replacement – the Cosmetics Supervision and Administration Regulation (CSAR).

Since CSAR came into effect on January 1, 2021, several subsidiary regulations have also been published, including:

  • Rules on Cosmetic Registration and Notification
  • Provision for Management of Cosmetic Registration and Notification Dossier
  • Provision for Management of Cosmetic New Raw Material Registration and Notification Dossiers
  • Technical Guidelines for Cosmetic Safety Assessment
  • Technical Guidance for Cosmetic Efficacy Claims
  • Rules on Cosmetic Classification and Categorization

These came into effect on May 1, 2021.
