The procedure to be followed in order to manufacture cosmetics in India has been laid down under the Drugs and Cosmetics Rules, 1945.

Schedule M-II classifies cosmetics into 11 broad, which includes hair dyes.
To manufacture this  product, a license has to be obtained from a Licensing Authority appointed by the State Government.

The application has to be submitted in Form 31 alongwith a license fee of Rs. 2500 and an inspection fee of Rs. 1000.

The manufacturer has to ensure that the production is done in the presence of a competent and qualified technical staff and at least one of the staff persons should possess the following educational requirements:

Holds a Diploma in Pharmacy approved by the Pharmacy Council of India under the Pharmacy Act, 1948; or is registered under the Pharmacy Act, 1948; or

Has passed the intermediate examination with Chemistry as one of the subjects or any other examination as recognized by the Licensing Authority as equivalent to it.

Before granting or refusing the license, the Licensing Authority is required to order inspection of the whole premises where the operations are to be carried out.

The inspectors are appointed under the Act. They are then required to submit a detailed report to the Licensing Authority which can then decide whether to grant the license or not.
