About our Cosmetics Sector Committee
Established in 2019, The EuroCham Cosmetics Sector Committee is an organisation of company members who operate in manufacturing, importing, distributing and exporting products in fields related to Cosmetics.
Key activities of the Cosmetics Sector Committee focus on policy advocacy and collaboration with key Government bodies such as Drug Administration of Vietnam; MOH Legal Department; provincial Departments of Health; Directorate for Standards, Metrology and Quality of Viet Nam; General Department of Customs; etc. in order to build efficient legal frameworks and implementation platforms. Besides, the Cosmetics Sector Committee was also established to raise awareness of consumers on cosmetics use; training consumers on the use of cosmetics, sharing scientific knowledge, etc.
Since the establishment date, the Cosmetics Sector Committee has achieved certain successes (e.g. the Prime Minister’s consent to abolish pre-approval requirement for cosmetic advertisement; developments in removing CFS requirement for imported cosmetics, etc.). We will thrive to grow even stronger, bolster industry voice and obtain more achievements in the coming time.
