Break news on January 29 | Thai police busted illegal Chinese cosmetics warehouse

Thailand’s Consumer Protection and Crime Prevention Department, Food and Drug Administration and other relevant departments jointly announced the results of the crackdown on counterfeit cosmetics warehouses

Recently, in a joint operation by Thailand’s Consumer Protection and Crime Prevention Department, the Food and Drug Administration and other relevant departments, on January 29, law enforcement officers successfully raided a warehouse suspected of selling counterfeit and illegal cosmetics. This action revealed the urgency and importance of compliance issues. A company that produces "ELA RAE brand armpit care cream" complained to the relevant departments, saying that its customers complained about changes in the texture of the cream they purchased. This complaint triggered an in-depth investigation, which ultimately revealed that a merchant named LUNA-TH was illegally selling large quantities of suspected counterfeit cosmetics on the TikTok platform.

As Chinese companies actively seek opportunities in the international market, going abroad has become a development trend. Behind this trend are the driving forces of the global economy, competitive pressure and the growing strength of Chinese enterprises. However, this case of Thailand’s crackdown on counterfeit cosmetics once again emphasizes the importance of legal and compliant operations. No matter where the company is located, it must strictly abide by local laws and regulations. Especially for industries involving supervision, such as food, cosmetics, etc., compliance issues are particularly important. In this case, the company involved imported and stored products from China without obtaining the necessary licenses. This is a typical compliance failure that may lead to serious legal consequences.

It is an unstoppable trend for Chinese companies to go abroad, but compliance issues must not be underestimated. For Chinese companies planning to enter the international market, especially those selling food, cosmetics, and other products, advance planning and preparation are crucial. Thailand’s case against counterfeit cosmetics once again proves that legal and compliant operations are the key to a company’s long-term success. Before going abroad, be sure to understand and comply with the laws and regulations of the target country to ensure that your business can develop smoothly and maintain a good reputation. Compliance issues must not be ignored, so before entering abroad, be sure to consult a professional compliance advisor to understand the laws, regulations, and licensing requirements of your target country.
