Management of Cosmetics in Cross Border eCommerce

Management of Cosmetics in Cross Border eCommerce


Current regulatory requirements are mainly
for offline cosmetics. With the development of social economics,
some new economic patterns appeared, such as the cross-border e-commerce. In 2016, there were some new policies issued
for the cosmetics imported via cross-border e-commerce, such as the new tax policy, and
the import retailing product list of the cross-border e-commerce. It was mentioned that cosmetics imported via
cross-border e-commerce have to be registered as the offline cosmetics in terms of the positive
list. In May (2016), another official file issued
that the online shopping bonded cosmetics can be imported without the cosmetics registration
in 10 cities before May 11, 2017. In November 2016 this transition period was
extended to the end of 2017. In September 2017, another file was issued
in the state council executive meeting that the transition period was extended again to
the end of 2018. So that means that the cosmetics imported
via cross-border e-commerce will be managed as offline cosmetics in 2019.
