The New Cosmetics Import Regulation of India


KnG11040701 Dated 07th April 2011

                The Ensuing Regulatory Environment of Cosmetics Import in India

 

1.  Introduction:

The emergence of a young urban elite population with increasing disposable income in cities, including an increase in the number of working women increasingly looking for lifestyle-oriented and luxury products is the main driver of demand for imported cosmetics products. Indian consumers tend to look towards international brands as lifestyle enhancement products.

The total size of the Indian retail beauty and cosmetics market is currently estimated at $950 million. The overall beauty and wellness market, which includes beauty services, is $2.68 billion. The cosmetics market in India is growing at 15-20% annually, twice as fast as that of the United States and European market (these figures have been reported in specialized studies pertaining to the Indian cosmetics market). Premium global brands are gaining sales as Indian consumers gain exposure to the global media and move from functional items to advance and specialized cosmetic products. Hence, it is extremely imperative for anyone desirous of entering the Indian cosmetics market or desirous of increasing their market share in the burgeoning cosmetics market of India ,to be familiar with the regulatory landscape encompassing import of cosmetics.

2.  Present Regulatory Environment:

Import of Cosmetics is governed by Section 9C to 15 of The Drugs and Cosmetics Act,1940. These Sections essentially empowers the Government to formulate rules specifying the operational conditionalities of cosmetics import. Pursuant to the Act, Part XIII of the Drugs and Cosmetics Rules, 1945, along with Rule 43A(which specifies the place of importation of cosmetics),Rule 144(which prohibits the import of cosmetics under specific circumstances) and part XV of the Drugs and Cosmetics Rules(which specifies the labeling and packaging requirements of imported cosmetics);in essence spells out in details the legal requirements to be fulfilled for importing cosmetics into India or exporting cosmetics to India. The defining feature of import at the moment is obtaining shipment by shipment no objection certificate from the authorities specified in the Drugs and Cosmetics Act. Theses regulations while retaining the standards, quality and packaging relating requirements is slated for a significant change with effect from 01.04.2011<strong>.(the date has now been advanced to 1st october,2012)

3.  The Ensuing Regulatory Changes w.e.f: 01.04.2011

Govt. of India has issued a gazette notification G.S.R. 426(E) dated 19th May 2010 making it mandatory to register all imported cosmetics.

 5.1. Clarification:

The firm have to give information about the cosmetics product(s), quantities to be imported along with justification for the quantity to be imported, and reason for importing, brief protocol of the studies to be conducted, needs to be submitted to the registration authority. In such cases no fees is to be paid. The registration authority may issue a NOC for the same, which need to be shown to such authorities to get goods cleared. Such material should be clearly mentioned “Not for Sale, for R & D Studies only” OR “Not for Sale, for consumer Studies only” The applicant will also give an undertaking that such cosmetics will not be sold, offered for sale distributed or displayed. Industry / importer /and Manufactures are responsible to ensure the same. CDSCO may take necessary actions if cosmetics packs are found not complying to this requirements as per provisions of Drugs & Cosmetics Act and Rules as applicable, including any penalty if found not complying this NOC issued.

6. Conclusion:

The amended provisions itself envisages grant of the registration certificate within a period of six months from the filing of the registration application in the prescribed manner. Given the serious human resources constraints being faced by the CDSO(Central Drug Standardisation Organisation) which has been mandated to process and issue the registration certificate; the existing players as well as those interested in entering the Indian Cosmetics Market should kick start the registration process at the earliest possible.

    Dear Ravi,

    We understand that for registration of each brand category a fee of USD 250 is payable. Can you please clarify if brand category is as per column 3 of the annexure in CDSCO guidelines, which means for each category mentioned in column 3, a separate fee of USD 250 is payable?
