Question 05
I am concerned the process may leak the confidential information of our raw materials to the public.

Is it a problem here?

No Worries, when the raw material notification code is generated, the formula for raw material safety information will not display the composition ratio of the raw material, nor the information of the raw material manufacturer.

When the raw material notification code is used for cosmetic filing (registration), the raw material safety information document is not displayed, only the raw material reporting code is displayed.
