A Commission from the Ministry of Health of the People's Republic of China to produce 'Guidelines for Risk Assessment of Cosmetic Raw Materials (draft)' was undertaken by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2008. After compilation of the Guidelines, the CDC allowed consultation until 30th April, 2011. Now the draft version of the Guidelines has been released and has been translated by REACH24H.
Released in Mandarin Chinese, there are a total of 5 chapters, including the scope, terms and definitions, data required for risk assessment, risk assessment procedure of cosmetic raw materials and risk assessment report of cosmetic raw materials. The Guideline stipulates the China cosmetic raw material risk assessment terms, general principles, technology and requirements. The Guideline also applies to China cosmetic raw materials and finished cosmetics products that create impurities during progress by raw material or in the production process.
