Cosmetics play an important role in enhancing one’s inherent beauty and physical features. The growing consciousness regarding appearance and self-care among individuals is driving the growth of the cosmetic industry worldwide. This is especially true for Thailand, specifically with regard to skincare and oral care among the ageing population. The growing interest in natural and organic cosmetics is also an important factor that has boosted cosmetics’ sale in the country.
For Cosmetic Product Registration in Thailand, the Food and Drug Authority (FDA), Thailand has adopted the guidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Cosmetic Directive (ACD), and thus, its regulations are in alignment with other ASEAN countries. Cosmetic products that are being marketed in Thailand must comply with these guidelines. The process of entering the Thai market includes conducting a product compliance check, doing a Cosmetic Product Registration, and maintaining a Product Information File (PIF). The safety of cosmetic products is also mandated by the FDA, and companies must provide a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR), a key document of the PIF that the FDA can easily access for registration purposes. An added advantage of marketing a cosmetic product in Thailand or any other ASEAN country is that it provides easy access to the remaining ASEAN markets because of the mutually harmonized regulations. Seventy to 80% of the PIF, which are already in use in the cosmetic regulations of Thailand, can be reused to notify the same product in other ASEAN markets; this is in fact a cost-effective and time-saving strategy.
