Change for the registration of cosmetics
On June 2, 2015, the Brazilian Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) published Decision 202/2015 changing the way of registration for cosmetics, personal care products and perfumes.Since June 15, 2015, the registration of these products must be done exclusively through the Agency Registration System (Datavisa), instead of the previous Electronic Automatic System (SGAS).
For cosmetics, personal care products and perfumes exempt from registration according to ANVISA Resolution 07/2015 of February 11, 2015, the registration should continue to be done at SGAS.
The owners of registers and post-registration applications for cosmetics, personal care products and perfumes filed through SGAS with test results that have not been yet published in the Official Gazette, should re-file the originally filed information.
ANVISA´s decision to return to the use of the previous registration system Datavisa was due to the identification of important inconsistencies in the SGAS and an effort to reduce the time of the registration process.
