Mark, very handy info.Thank you.
Would just like to point out that there is no such thing as exclusive rights for selling in Australia. You can parallel import and this is what a lot of people do. The beauty industry is rife with it. Bear in mind too that the ACCC takes a very poor view of suppliers who attempt to dictate a price and venue for sale by putting limiting conditions of sale on the products they are offloading. This is price fixing and it's illegal.Anything that is a known brand of any sort will generally have a distributor in Australia with exclusive rights to distribute the product. That means that if you are importing that product, you are probably buying from someone who isn't allowed to be selling to you so its either fake, out of date or etc.
OP, if you are intending to import beauty products and especially so from Asia, you do need to get a certificate of authenticity in relation to the ingredients contained in the goods as a lot of people get burnt by Asian goods that aren't allowed to be sold in this country due to ingredients, instability of the product and bans. A shipping agent can do this for you. Also, as you are intending to private label, you must put the product through stability testing and insure yourself for product liability. Good luck with your venture!
