    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:

    1. Set the risk level of recalled cosmetics;
    2. Punishment rules for distributors not instituting recall within required schedule;
    3. Expand the scope of waste product and the power of the government to issue mandatory recall of products;
    4. 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.
