Brazilian government opens consultation to facilitate the import of cosmetics

Brazil’s Health Regulatory Agency (Anvisa) has opened a public consultation on the technical requirements for the importation of beauty products, cosmetics, fragrances, and toiletries.

One of the proposals being evaluated is to withdraw the "consularized Certificate of Free Sale” from the list of documents that must be presented requirements for the importation of cosmetics. This document - which is mandatory to import cosmetic products in Brazil and other Mercosur countries - aims to prove that the imported product is already marketed and approved in the country of origin.

The new regulation will repeal Annex III of the Resolution RDC no. 7 of 10 February 2015 establishing the list of technical requirements for the importation of toiletries, cosmetics and perfumes.

Comments can be made online until the 11th of November 2016 (click here).
