According to the Administrative Measures on Cosmetics Registration and Notification and the Provisions for Management of Cosmetic Registration and Notification Dossiers, China no longer sets validity period for the notification of general cosmetics, but introduces an annual report system.
Specifically, starting from January 1, 2022, notifiers shall submit the annual report of general cosmetics notified over one year ago through the new cosmetics registration and notification information service platform (“new platform”) from January 1 to March 31 of each year.
2023 Annual Report
This year’s annual report started on January 1, 2023. It should be noted that due to the gradual elimination of the pandemic, the 2023 annual report submission period will no longer be postponed. Cosmetic notifiers must complete the reporting before March 31, 2023. 1
The products subject to annual report submission are general cosmetics notified before December 31, 2021, including Chinese domestic and imported products.
