China’s NMPA Approves Two New In Vitro Methods For Regulating Cosmetics

March 22, 2019

We are pleased to share that today China’s National Medical Products Association (NMPA) has approved new methods for the regulations of cosmetics.  Among these are two in vitro methods: DPRA for skin sensitization and the Short Time Exposure (STE) assay for eye irritation. IIVS’ International Outreach Program introduced these methods during its training program with NMPA and we will continue to support their implementation in key laboratories.
