The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published an update related to cosmetic product facility registration/product listing mandated by the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA).
The FDA said it will provide more information on the launch date for electronic submission and paper submission forms in the coming weeks.
MoCRA requires any facility that manufactures or processes cosmetic products intended for sale in the US - regardless of global location - to register with FDA.
It also requires manufacturers, packers, and distributors of cosmetics intended for sale in the US to submit to FDA lists of products and ingredient information.
The statutory deadline for facility registration and product listing is 29 December 2023.
Duane Morris LLP laywer Kelly Bonner said the update effectively pushes back the FDA’s anticipated October launch date for electronically submitting cosmetic product facility registration and product listing information.
The FDA said it strongly encourages electronic submissions to facilitate efficiency and timeliness of data submission and management for the agency.
“Industry can continue to prepare for registration and listing by reviewing the documents FDA has provided and being proactive in collecting the information required to complete their facility registrations and product listings,” the update said.
