Compliance with a unified system of record-filing management replaced the need for prior administrative approval when importing non-special-use cosmetics to China as of 10 November last year. In line with this, the manufacturer of the prospective import (or its duly-appointed mainland representative) now only needs to complete the requisite record-filing procedures via the website of the National Medical Products Administration (www.nmpa.gov.cn).

For the purpose of these import regulations, “non-special-use cosmetics” are deemed to be general beauty products that don't claim to have a specific application / benefit, such as the promotion of hair growth, hair colouring, hair perming, hair removal, breast re-shaping, fitness enhancement, sweat / odour reduction, freckle removal or protection from the sun.
