2021 was a year of significant events and progress in the cosmetic industry in the Asia-Pacific region. China officially implemented the long-awaited new cosmetic regulation—Cosmetic Supervision and Administration Regulation (CSAR) and its supporting rules, marking the full implementation of its new cosmetic regulatory framework. Japan launched a new version of the overarching technical standards for quasi-drugs—Japanese Standards of Quasi-drug Ingredients (JSQI 2021). South Korea introduced the natural and organic cosmetic raw material certification mechanism. China Taiwan, ASEAN countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand), India and Australia have also undergone several regulatory updates.
Global cosmetic stakeholders need to stay vigilant about the frequent regulatory changes, so as to effectively address compliance challenges and aim for great success while shouldering their social responsibilities. Therefore, ChemLinked has prepared this webinar to provide an overview of the revised and emerging cosmetic regulations in the Asia-Pacific region over the year and educate our clients on key regulatory points.
