In Indonesia, all cosmetic manufacturers must obtain a production license before manufacturing cosmetics. Production licenses are divided into two categories by cosmetic forms and types:
Class A Production License grants rights to manufacture all forms and types of cosmetics.
Class B Production License grants restricted rights which are confined to the manufacture of certain forms and types of cosmetics with low risks or are made with simple technologies. List of Forms and Types of Cosmetics Allowed for Production by Manufacturers with Class B Production Licenses regulates the prohibited and permitted cosmetic types manufactured by manufacturers with class B production licenses.
If manufacturers with class B production licenses want to manufacture cosmetics which are neither a prohibited product category and are not listed in the permitted cosmetic types for class B production license, the manufacturers should submit a safety assessment report before manufacture.
On Feb. 26, 2021, Indonesia implemented the amended List of Forms and Types of Cosmetics Allowed for Production by Manufacturers with Class B Production Licenses. Several types of cosmetics that are prohibited or permitted to be manufactured by manufacturers with class B production licenses are newly added.
