Cosmetics Regulatory Services in Malaysia

Request a Quote


Current import trends in Malaysia depict a growing curve for Cosmetic Products. All Cosmetic Products, which are intended to be marketed and distributed in the local market are required to be notified with the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA) Malaysia, formerly known as the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau (NPCB). The voluntary Halal Standards and Regulations in the country cover all the aspects of Cosmetic Products including Production, Ingredient Sourcing, Manufacturing Procedure, Storage, Packing, and Logistics. This makes the Cosmetic Product Registration in Malaysia, an extremely tedious process with possibilities to affect the ROI, and the time taken for the procedures. For a Cosmetic Product Notification in Malaysia, there must be a locally incorporated company, i.e., License Holder or a Cosmetic Notification Holder (CNH), which can act as a single point of contact on behalf of the Foreign Brand Owner.

With strong Regulatory knowledge of Cosmetics in the Malaysian Region, Freyr not only assists companies to understand and align with the NPRA Regulations but also acts as a local agent to ensure obtaining quick approvals. We liaise with Local Health Authority for quick query responses and mitigate other approval roadblocks.
