    The NPRA prohibits cosmetics to use the same or similar names as previously revoked/banned products when applying for notification.

    The National Pharmacy Regulatory Agency (NPRA) of Malaysia identified cosmetic products on the market which used the same or similar name and/or packaging as products which were previously removed from the market due to being either counterfeit or infringing on the IP of other products. To bolster IP protection and consumer rights NPRA decided that cosmetics are prohibited to use the same/similar name or packaging with products that have been revoked when applying for notification. Failure to comply with such decisions may result in regulatory action taken against those products. The directive entered into force on Jan 2nd 2018.
