For better implementation of its cosmetic recall scheme, Korea will classify recalled cosmetics based on risk level.
MFDS will pre-decide the risk level of the cosmetic product and will assign corresponding recall and fining requirements based on this.
The whole recall scheme includes:
- Set the risk level of recalled cosmetics;
- Punishment rules for distributors not instituting recall within required schedule;
- Expand the scope of waste product and the power of the government to issue mandatory recall of products;
- Improve the management of cosmetic compliance issues.
Rather than just recall cosmetics that violate Korea's cosmetic safety standard or that are prohibited to manufacture, import or sale; the new scheme authorizes the government to also recall products that are found to have issues during quality inspections, without a manufacturing record or other issues that may pose risks to public health.
