Important Advocacy Update: New Regulations for Cosmetics in the United States
As you know, in December of 2022, congress passed The Modernization of Cosmetic Regulations Act or MoCRA. Even though the bill passed, The Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act of 1938 is still the law of the land until MoCRA is officially enacted.
The FDA is currently starting the process of enacting MoCRA and they are holding a public hearing on Good Manufacturing Practices on June 1, 2023. This will be a virtual hearing open to the public and we encourage you to attend. There will be a list of registered speakers, the HSCG Executive Director Leigh O’Donnell will be speaking at approximately 11:15 AM. She will be offering a statement on protecting small businesses as new GMP regulations are promulgated for the cosmetic industry.
You must register to attend this hearing virtually here: https://www.fda.gov/cosmetics/cosmetics-news-events/public-meeting-good-manufacturing-practices-cosmetic-products-06012023#event-information
The HSCG will keep you informed on MoCRA as it moves through the rule-making process to enactment. This process could take several years. Until that time, please continue to follow current laws governing cosmetics in the United States.
Thank you for being a member, it is your dues that allow us to advocate on your behalf.
