Report: Guidebook for Exporting/Importing Cosmetics to Japan

About the Report:

Although Japan is the second largest cosmetics market in the world and highly relevant for any European exporter, the unique and complicated exporting/importing procedures and requirements, as well as the lack of documentation in English, prevents exploring the full potential of this market.  Therefore, this guide attempts to provide a contribution towards bridging the information gap, covering the whole legal and administrative process of exporting/importing cosmetics to Japan. 

Please go to the EU-Japan website, to get the access to this report.
The report has been released within Minerva Fellowship framework managed by the EU-Japan Centre.
