ANVISA and ABIHPEC sign protocol to enhance registration of cosmetics

The Brazilian Health Surveillance Agency (Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária, ANVISA) and the Brazilian Association of the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Industry (ABIHPEC) have signed a cooperation protocol with the objective to improve the computerized system dedicated to the registration and notification of toiletries, cosmetics and perfumes, as well as enhancing the automation of activities related to the regulation of these products.

The Agreement provides for greater interaction and cooperation between the Agency and the industry in the search for solutions to facilitate the entire process.

The computerized system for the notification and registration of personal products, cosmetics and perfumes hygiene was launched in February 2014 in order to automate and simplify the approval process of the applications. Since the launch of the system, 14,203 notifications, 229 registrations were processed, as well as the renewal of 702 previously notified or registered products. Furthermore, 565 certificates of free sale were issued.

"Because it is a new tool and a new methodology, the system needs to be constantly updated, with a more effective participation of all sectors involved in this issue," said the ANVISA.

Thanks to this new partnership with ABIHPEC, ANVISA expectes to be able to upgrade the stability and functionality of the computerized system, and to develop new tools to improve the effectiveness of the notification and registration of cosmetic products.
