PARIS — The ASEAN Cosmetics Directive, a common regulatory scheme that is to impact 10 countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations zone, will come into force on Jan. 1.
Largely based on the European Cosmetics Directive, the ASEAN Cosmetics Directive aims to ensure the safety, quality and benefits of all cosmetics sold in the ASEAN region, said Roger Montigny, head of L'Oréal's regulatory affairs for the Asia zone. Its goal is also to eliminate trade restrictions.
