    Inconsistencies between the results of testing and/or cosmetic inspection and the corresponding certificates supplied by importers were the main reason for imported cosmetics being rejected by GAC during customs inspection at Chinese ports from April to June.

    According to the latest data supplied by China General Administration of Customs (GAC) on non-compliant cosmetics, a total of 27 batches of substandard cosmetics imported from 6 countries failed customs inspection in the second quarter of 2019.

    Major categories of cosmetics rejected were skincare and cleansing cosmetics. Reasons for rejections were primarily associated with invalid cosmetic certificates, including inconsistent between cosmetic inspection/testing results and the certificate supplied or incomplete certificates or relevant materials.

    The table below details the information of rejected cosmetics each month:
