Similar to the UK’s cosmetic OPSS and the European Union’s Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP), Thailand has an online system for cosmetic product notification. The Thai Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provides an e-service system where companies can submit their cosmetic product notifications electronically. This online process streamlines the notification procedure by allowing for electronic submission of documents and data required for the cosmetic product to be sold legally in Thailand.
Thailand tends to align its cosmetic regulations with the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive (ACD), which is the main regulatory framework for the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) cosmetic industry.
ASEAN member states, including Thailand, have been working towards harmonising their cosmetic regulations under the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive since the early 2000s.
