Businesses trading cosmetic products around the world need to comply with region-specific requirements in order to ensure smooth customs clearance in the countries they are trading with. Countries like China demand Pre-Registration as a mandatory requirement for cosmetics marketing, while the EU commission ask for cosmetic notification to be made through their Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP) and via poison centers or similar bodies established by the Europe Member States to make notified information available electronically. In the US, cosmetic notification is not mandatory, however, FDA encourages VCRP (Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program). In Canada, by Health Canada regulations, cosmetic notification is mandatory. As per section 30 of these Cosmetic Regulations, manufacturers and importers must notify Health Canada within 10 days after they first sell a cosmetic product in the region. In KSA a local agent is required to register any cosmetic products.
