When the authorized enterprise opens the user rights, it shall also submit the authorization letter, which shall specify the authorization relationship and scope, issued by the cosmetic ingredient manufacturer.

What is Cosmetic Ingredient Submission Code
After the cosmetic ingredient safety information is submitted through the Cosmetic Ingredient Safety Information Registration Platform, the cosmetic ingredient submission code is automatically generated. It is composed of five manufacturer digital codes, six ingredient digital codes and three ingredient quality specification digital codes, and each group of codes is connected with "-".
The NMPA shall proactively disclose the ingredient name, manufacturer information, and submission code for cosmetic ingredient safety information that has been submitted.
