Israel's Economic Policy Law is a government bill presented to the Knesset (Israel's parliament) alongside the State Budget Law. This legislation incorporates government legislative amendments for structural, institutional, and policy reforms necessary to fulfil its economic policy. The Economic Policy Law devotes a separate section to the Pharmacist's Ordinance and introduces an amendment aiming to reduce the cost of living by facilitating the flow of imported goods into Israel.
The notified amendment allows the importation of cosmetics into Israel based on compliance with the relevant EU Regulations, and under the condition that the product is being marketed at least in one EU Member. It allows for an importer's Declaration of Conformity. In addition, it opens a new import route allowing parallel importation of insensitive cosmetics.
The notified draft amendment should be approved before 4 November 2021, together with Israel's National Budget for the years 2021-2022.
