2023 has been a dynamic year for the global cosmetic industry, marked by significant strides in regulatory advancements and enforcement. Governments and international organizations have implemented new policies and regulations aimed at enhancing the safety, quality, and transparency of cosmetic products. The developments include the introduction of the cosmetic overarching regulation, revisions to pre-market and post-market supervision regulations, and updates to ingredient use requirements. As a result, businesses operating within the global cosmetic market have encountered evolving compliance challenges and opportunities.

Regarding regulatory changes in the Asia Pacific region, South Korea has introduced updates to ingredient use requirements and alternative animal testing methods, along with proposing new legislation on microplastic control. New Zealand has unveiled revisions to the Cosmetic Products Group Standard 2020, aiming for more effective management of hazardous substances. ASEAN has adopted new amendments to the ingredient annexes to the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive (ACD), further enhancing the oversight of cosmetic ingredient safety. Simultaneously, ASEAN member states, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand, have also undergone important regulatory updates.

To help businesses stay informed and navigate the dynamic regulatory landscape, ChemLinked is thrilled to present the “2023 Cosmetic Recap” webinar series, which includes three individual webinars.
