SFDA Issues IECIC First Batch for Public Consultation

China State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) has issued the first batch draft of the Inventory of Existing Cosmetic Ingredient in China (IECIC) on 6 November, 2011 for public consultation. The 2011 first batch list contains altogether 1710 existing ingredients in the Chinese cosmetic market.


China State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) has issued the first batch draft of the Inventory of Existing Cosmetic Ingredient in China (IECIC) on 6 November, 2011 for public consultation. The 2011 first batch list contains altogether 1710 existing ingredients in the Chinese cosmetic market.

The list has been published in the form of opinion-soliciting draft and China SFDA is now welcoming prompt public comments on the proposal up to 13 December, 2011.

Compared with the previous 2003 version issued by the Ministry of Health, the 2011 inventory (first batch) only contains about a little more than half of the ingredients. However, SFDA has strengthened the restriction on the permitted use limit of existing ingredients and the use scope for certain ingredients.

And SFDA has taken into account two factors in the compilation: one is the decision made on the result of expert review opinions; the other is the emphasis on the specifications of China’s Hygienic Standard for Cosmetics (2007) that has been published on July 2007.

And we also suggest cosmetic companies be aware that the new list is only the first batch of IECIC this year and according to information from SFDA hopefully more batches of the list could be awaiting in later months.
