On July 29, 2020, China National Medical Products Administration issued the draft Cosmetic Classification Rules and Catalog for public consultation, one of the subsidiary regulations of CSAR and the revised version of the previous draft Cosmetic Classification Standard.

The draft stipulates the classification and coding of cosmetics. As per the draft, the classification of cosmetics will be refined into 5 categories, namely the classification of efficacy claims, application area, dosage forms, target users and application method, and will adopt a coding system.

The cosmetics classification code is composed of 5 layers of numbers, and each layer is separated by "-" and represented by a 2-digit number or letters. For example, the classification code of facial cleanser is 01-05-01-01-01
