China proposes to ease certification requirements for cosmetics imports

Mar '07
On February 21, 2007, the Chinese WTO TBT Enquiry Point notified to the World Trade Organization (WTO) of a proposed policy change on the certification of imported cosmetics from countries with BSE. The new policy will become effective on August 1, 2007.

This announcement is positive news for the U.S. cosmetics industry since they will no longer be required to submit a CTFA certificate with shipments to China. China's demand for imported cosmetics remains strong, and the country's imports increased by 40 and 84 percent respectively in volume and value in January 2007 over the same month of the previous year. Attached is an unofficial translation of China's WTO notification.

On February 21, 2007, the Chinese World Trade Organization (WTO) Enquiry Office at the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) notified to the WTO of a draft policy change on cosmetics imports from countries with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). The new policy will become effective on August 31, 2007.

According to the new policy, Chinese importers will be no longer requested to provide the Cosmetic Certificate for BSE issued by the health administrative department, or officially authorized agencies in BSE countries, including the United States, when they apply for health permits with the Ministry of Health (MOH) or declare for import inspection and quarantine with the Chinese entry-exit inspection and quarantine bureaus underAQSIQ.
