Cosmetic Product Registration in Brazil - Overview

Cosmetics market in Brazil is anticipated to grow at a significant level in the coming days due to changes in lifestyle and growing demand for skin care. In addition to this, increasing consumer awareness regarding skin care is the further forecast to aid the market growth in Brazil. Cosmetic products must undergo either cosmetics notification or cosmetics registration with the Agencia Nacional de Vigilancia Sanitaria (ANVISA), the National Health Surveillance Agency responsible for regulating the production, import, and trade of cosmetics in the country.

In Brazil, cosmetics are classified as Grade I and Grade II based on the level of risk. The ANVISA Cosmetics Regulations, offer two (02) ways for cosmetics to gain authorization in the Brazilian market: Cosmetics Notification for Grade I products and prior Cosmetics Registration of Grade II products. Companies legally constituted in Brazil and with the ANVISA Operation Permit (AFE) can import and notify/register the cosmetics in Brazil. Therefore, overseas manufacturers should have a commercial agreement with the local company that will undertake the technical and legal responsibility and notify or register cosmetics with the ANVISA. Cosmetics notification of Grade I cosmetics and cosmetics registration of Grade II cosmetics must be done through the petition system in Brazil. Company registration is the first step to getting access to the petitioning system after which the identification of the appropriate subject code of the petition and required documentation is submitted to file the petition. Once the notification of cosmetic products is submitted to the ANVISA, the product can be placed in the market by the company immediately. In the case of cosmetic product registration of the Grade II category, the registration process is initiated by submitting an online petition. Post receiving the petition, the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) reviews the registration dossier to ensure Compliance. The result of the petition is published in the official gazette in the form of a registration number. Upon successful registration, products can be imported and distributed in the Brazilian market.
