Cosmetics Regulatory Services in China - Overview

As the largest Asian economy, China attracts cosmetic manufacturers with its vast consumer base and economic prowess. Our Regulatory team with 2300+ experts ensures flawless compliance with cosmetic product notification and registration requirements under the Cosmetics Supervision and Administration Regulations (CSAR). Navigating China's Regulatory terrain involves strategic coordination with two (02) competent authorities - the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) and the General Administration of Customs (GAC).

Imported cosmetics are regulated by two (02) competent Regulatory authorities in China:

Cosmetic Product Classification

Under the current CSAR China, cosmetics are classified into two (02) categories:

  • Special Cosmetics
  • General Cosmetics

Important Validities

Special Cosmetic Registration: Special cosmetic product registration is valid for five (05) years. Renewal requires filing within 30-90 working days before expiration, committing to compliance with national standards and technical specifications.

General Cosmetics Notification: The validity of notification is not specified, unlike registration in China. Annual report submission is required, demonstrating general cosmetic product compliance with laws and regulations.
