Exporting cosmetics to Brazil and China


Could anyone tell us what are the requirements for exporting cosmetics to both Brazil and China?

What are the necessary regulatory requirements to be met beforehand etc.?

(Any link’s that could be provided on this subject would be great!)

We’d really appreciate any advice you could offer us!



The above link is the best quick overview in English available. You will find the blog useful for all sorts of information on Brazil.

Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be found on our website www.gov.uk:
– Type “Notice 275” in search box > Notice 275: Customs export procedures
I would also suggest that you contact the Customs Authorities in the importing countries to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.
