China's updated Cosmetic Supervision and Administration Regulation (CSAR) in 2021 has brought significant changes in the cosmetic industry. Stricter requirements have been implemented, such as product safety assessment, efficacy evaluation, adverse reaction monitoring, and ingredient safety information submission. Additionally, new requirements for cosmetic label management, online sales, and sample retention have been introduced. It is imperative for businesses to stay informed and comply with these regulations to ensure the safety and efficacy of their products.

With two and a half years of implementation, what is the current situation of cosmetic supervision under the CSAR framework? What are the key requirements affecting businesses in the subsidiary regulations? What are the common reasons for non-compliance of enterprises? To address these questions, ChemLinked organized this webinar that provides a detailed account of the current supervision situation, the key regulatory requirements and changes under the CSAR regulatory framework, and an analysis of non-compliance cases. Join us to stay informed and compliant with the regulations to avoid penalties and ensure product safety and efficacy.
