Overview of ASEAN Cosmetics Regulations

Sonal Shidhore*1, Gaurav Agnihotri1 & Dr. Deepak Pandurang Belsare2

Introduction: Ten Member Countries under ASEAN have recognized the need to harmonize technical regulations as one community-one standard to help eliminate technical barriers to trade. The Agreement on the ASEAN Harmonized Regulatory Scheme (AHCRS) was signed on the 2nd September 2003. The content in Asean Cosmetics Directive (ACD) is almost the same as the EU Cosmetics Directive. The ASEAN Harmonized Cosmetic Regulatory Scheme covers the following aspects: The ASEAN Mutual Recognition Arrangement of Product Registration Approvals for Cosmetics (Schedule A) and The ASEAN Cosmetic Directive (Schedule B).

 
For ease of business, ASEAN implemented switch from a pre-market approval system, to a post-marketing surveillance system. Due to this process, the cosmetic product can be marketed only after notification and receipt of acknowledgement copy received from the respective regulatory authority. The region is undertaking consistent efforts towards standards harmonization in the ASEAN priority sectors of integration and in bringing about regulatory convergence taking into account the diversities that exist in the ten Member States.
