HA NOI (VNS) — The Health Ministry fined the HCM City-based Eternal Beauty Company Ltd (Viet Nam EBC) Viet Nam $US50, 000 on Monday, for violating the ASEAN-Cosmetic Good Manufacturing Practice (ASEAN-CGMP).

The company was found to be using a formula in its cosmetic products that was different from the formula that had been registered and approved, said Nguyen Tat Dat, vice head of the Drug Administration of Viet Nam.
