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.
