China Introduces Transitional Measures to Implement the New Provisions on Cosmetic Registration and Notification Dossiers

The transitional measures mainly deal with matters on the migration of cosmetics registration and notification information service platform, management of already registered and notified products, submission of cosmetic ingredients safety-related information, efficacy evaluation testing report of special cosmetics, and annual reporting of general cosmetics.

On March 4, 2021, China NMPA released the Provisions for Management of Cosmetic Registration and Notification Dossiers (short for “the Provisions”), spelling out the documentation requirements for the application, modification, renewal, and cancellation of cosmetic registration and notification. The Provisions will take effect on May 1, 2021. 1

To ensure a smooth transition to the new regulatory regime and help enterprises better cope with new registration and notification regulations, China NMPA released transitional measures in the following five aspects on March 5, 2021. 2

1. Cosmetics Registration and Notification Information Service Platform

A new cosmetics registration and notification information service platform (“new platform”) will be launched for cosmetic registration and notification on the online service hall of NMPA.

  • Starting from April 1, 2021, domestic cosmetics registrants, notifiers, domestic responsible persons, and cosmetic manufacturers can submit relevant documents to apply for registration and notification user accounts on the new platform per the requirements of the Provisions.

  • As of May 1, 2021, cosmetics registrants, notifiers, domestic responsible persons shall apply for registration of special cosmetics or notification of general cosmetics through the new platform.

    On the same day, the original cosmetics administrative licensing and notification information management system (“original platform”) will no longer accept special cosmetics registration or general cosmetics notification. The applications of special cosmetics registration that have been submitted and accepted on the original platform but have yet to make approval decisions will continue to be reviewed and approved on the original platform.

2. Products that have been registered and notified on the original platform
