First, the safety standards for cosmetics have been strengthened. Producers need to meet the requirements of the Product Safety Reporting Regulations before placing their products on the market.

The responsible person must keep product information files, including product safety assessment information, and be able to provide relevant information during inspections by market surveillance agencies.
