FIVE KEY POINTS
- 3 months grace period
Since the implementation of the “Measures”is on May 1, 2021, which means cosmetics brands have a three months grace period to catch the window and to complete the filing last time with the old notification system. But please be aware of that, the future restriction of the new regulation might still affect the previously notified products and are required to make supplements accordingly. So please pay close attention to the recent regulation changes if you already begin the registration and filing process.
- Important of Responsible Person
According to Article 8 of the “Measures”, it indicates that Responsible Persons of the brands in China will take more responsibilities than ever before. For example, the responsible person should take responsibility for the products’ quality and safety and also support the registrant and filing person to implement the Adverse reaction monitoring.
