Get Ready for China’s New Cosmetic Ingredient Registration and Notification

Joanna Ru
Thursday , 15th Apr 2021

On Mar. 4, 2021, China released the finalized Provisions for Management of New Cosmetic Ingredient Registration and Notification Dossiers, which will come into effect on May 1. The Provisions detail the documentation requirements for new cosmetic ingredients (NCI) registration and notification.

China eases the market entry requirements for NCI by adopting classified management. Only high-risk NCI require registration with NMPA, while low-risk NCI require only a simple notification that is deemed to be completed just after submitting notification documents. NCI enterprises will usher in a golden period of expedited market access to China.

Although the entry threshold for NCI has been lowered, the documentation requirements are still very complicated. During the webinar, Joanna Ru from REACH24H will interpret the NCI registration and notification procedures and documentation requirements, and give insightful regulatory compliance recommendations to enterprises.
