CSAR Cosmetic products Children's products

On the 6th of August, the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) enacted “Measures for Cosmetics Supervision and Administration” which will come into force from the first day of 2022. This is the first regulation that focuses on cosmetic production and management in China, according to NMPA.

There are seven chapters and sixty-six articles which outline the license, manufacture, supervision, liability, and management rules, including the following: 

  • Certificate holders, agents and entrusted factories must establish a system that can guarantee the quality management process.
  • The storage spots are not allowed to store any products that might affect the quality of cosmetics.
  • Recording the sources of incoming raw materials and cosmetics to ensure that products are traceable. All the records are subjected to inspection.

In addition, the 5-years certificate validity period can be re-counted under certain circumstances, which lessen producers’ burden. The rules on children's cosmetics are stricter as a special label must be made on the children’s products.
