Reclassification of All Cosmetics as Controlled Cosmetics

PReMA Life

Under new Food and Drug Administration requirements, certain cosmetic products may need to be reclassified and re-registered. Previously, there had been three categories of cosmetics: general cosmetics, controlled cosmetics, and specially controlled cosmetics. Under the ASEAN Harmonized Cosmetic Regulation Scheme, all cosmetic products will need to be registered with the Thai FDA within the controlled cosmetics category, and the other two categories will be eliminated. Therefore, companies and individuals who registered their products with the Thai FDA prior to September 26, 2008, will need to submit additional documents to reclassify their products as controlled cosmetics.
