Imported Soaps, Black Hair Powder and Hair Removal Wax, Require Submission of Entry Notice to KPTA from 2020

Starting from December 31, 2019, imported solid soaps, black hair powder, and hair removal wax will be classified as cosmetics and will be required to report an entry notice to KPTA before importation.

Earlier ChemLinked reported [1] that South Korea implemented the amended Enforcement Rule of the Cosmetics Act [2] on December 31, 2018. In the amendments, solid soaps, black hair powder, and hair removal wax will be classified as cosmetics starting from December 31, 2019. They will be required to report an Entry Notice of Imported Products and get the approval from Korea Pharmaceutical Traders Association (KPTA) before importing it to South Korea.

Then on November 22, 2019, KPTA released an announcement stating that it would begin to accept the application and issue the approval of entry notice of imported solid soaps, black hair powder, and hair removal wax from December 1, 2019 [3]. Approval of an entry notice reported in December will be issued starting from January 2, 2020.
