Sunscreen (Product Safety Standard) Bill (4 page(s), in English)
The Bill proposes that the AS/NZS 2604:2021 Sunscreen Products – Evaluation & Classification becomes a mandatory product safety standard for all sunscreen products in trade in New Zealand, to be enforced under section 29 of the Fair Trading Act 1986.
Under the Bill a sunscreen product is defined as a product that both—
(a) contains, or is represented as containing, any component able to absorb, reflect, or scatter ultraviolet rays and that is intended to be on the surface of human skin with the purpose of protecting against reddening of the skin caused by ultraviolet radiation and other ultraviolet-induced dam‐ age; and
(b) is 1 or more of the following:
(i) a product that is represented as being primarily to protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation:
(ii) an insect repellent with a labelled SPF of 4 or more:
(iii) a skin care (within the meaning of AS/NZS 2604:2021) with a labelled SPF greater than 15 (other than a product intended for application to the lips, or a product that is represented primarily as a tinted base or foundation).
The Bill also proposes that sunscreen products that are manufactured or imported into New Zealand before the date on which the Act receives Royal assent are exempted from the product safety standard for sunscreen products for 12 months after commencement.
