New Draft of China Cosmetic Safety Standard

Data compiled on January 21st, 2015 revealed that the number of the enterprises granted a cosmetics production license certificate was 3880, and the number of individual licensed cosmetic products was 275,127. With the rapid development of China's cosmetics industry the current cosmetics safety standard "Hygienic Standard for Cosmetics 2007" (hereinafter "the Standard 2007") lacks the specific provisions to adequately regulate China's industry evidenced by the large number of cosmetic related adverse events reported by the CFDA since it took over regulatory responsibility from the MoH. In an effort to remedy this situation the National Institutes for Food and Drug Control (NIFDC), commissioned by CFDA, revised the Standard, and published the "Safety Technical Standard for Cosmetics (draft)" for comments on February 3, 2015 for public consultation.
