Export Cosmetics to the ASEAN

Export Cosmetics to the ASEAN

Exporting cosmetics to ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries requires compliance with their regulations and requirements. The ASEAN Cosmetic Directive (ACD) is the regulatory framework that governs the safety, quality, and labeling of cosmetic products in the ASEAN region.

To export cosmetics to ASEAN, you need to ensure that your products comply with the ACD. This includes registering your products with the relevant regulatory authorities in each ASEAN country where you plan to sell your products. You will also need to provide documentation such as product information files, safety assessments, and labeling information in the local language.

It is important to note that each ASEAN country may have its own specific requirements and regulations for cosmetics. Therefore, it is recommended to consult with a local regulatory expert or seek guidance from the ASEAN Cosmetic Association to ensure compliance with all relevant regulations and requirements.
