China’s Association of Fragrance Flavor and Cosmetic Industries opens consultation on draft standards

China’s Association of Fragrance Flavor and Cosmetic Industries (AFFCI) has opened five draft group standards up to public consultation, according to a report published by ChemLinked.

Group standards provide a voluntary framework for a given industry or profession. AFFCI developed the new standards in association with Unilever China, L’Oreal China and Shanghai Jahwa and they are designed to provide an industry standard for safety management as well as encourage self-regulation.

The guidelines cover cosmetic safety assessment, lifecycle management for raw materials and quality standards for cosmetic ingredients. The deadline for public comments to be submitted is December 10.

    By working with consumer goods producers such as L`Oreal and P&G, there is a better chance
    of a positive outcome to this consultation. The cosmetics industry in China is in need of a
    regulatory overhaul and consequential improvements. It is to be hoped that the results will
    be implemented.
