China Consults on 5 Draft Standards Regarding Cosmetic Safety Assessment

Takehome: On Nov. 12, China Association of Fragrance Flavor and Cosmetic Industries (CAFFCI) opened a public consultation on five draft group standards (including 2 guidelines and 3 cosmetic ingredients quality standards) on cosmetic safety assessment in line with a regulatory reform schedule which was detailed in an earlier ChemLinked report.

The development of five new draft group standards was headed by CAFFCI in collaboration with some leading companies including Unilever China, L’Oréal China and Shanghai Jahwa to provide a reference basis for cosmetic enterprises to strengthen safety management, foster increased industry self-regulation and ultimately standardize the market. In general, group standards refer to a series of voluntary standards established or adopted by a professional association or body for enterprises’ reference.
