Regular updates of the lists of substances used in cosmetics are required in order to take into account technical and scientific progress and the development of new technologies as well as new information on the recommended use and restrictions of the substances. This work is a permanent item on the agenda of Mercosur meetings.

The new regulation will replace the current resolution RDC 47/2006 establishing the current list of permitted UV filters for personal, cosmetics and perfumes toiletries. The full text of the proposal and the specific contribution form are available on the Anvisa website. To publish your contribution, just access the page CP No. 28 / 2015 on the Anvisa website and fill in the form.
