China's current cosmetic regulatory system consists of the overarching “Regulations concerning the Hygiene Supervision over Cosmetics (1989)” and a series of subsidiary rules, standards and guidance documents issued by the former authority, the China Ministry of Health (MOH) and the current regulator, China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA). Continuous change in cosmetic legislations and the institutional changes which brought about the newly formed CFDA have introduced new requirements for cosmetics prior to entering the Chinese market.

Leading experts from REACH24H Consulting Group will elaborate on the regulatory strategy for imported cosmetic products and the challenges facing new ingredients application in China. Case studies and practical guidance will also be shared.
