S. Florida Area FLSCC Meeting

The Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (commonly known by its acronym “MoCRA”) was signed into law on December 23, 2022.  Its intent is to modernize federal regulatory oversight of cosmetic and personal care products and create a comprehensive and uniform national framework for their regulation.

Contained within MoCRA are two elements, each of which will be discussed within this presentation.  The first element consists of a number of basic requirements that will be implemented for the Cosmetics industry over the coming year.  The second and more far-reaching element is the granting of authority and responsibility to US FDA for establishing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for the Cosmetics industry.  Before either of these elements can be discussed, critical terms found within MoCRA must first be defined and understood.

The presentation will explain and define the terminology used, review the basic requirements under MoCRA and discuss the new authority and responsibility that has been granted to US FDA for establishing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for the Cosmetics Industry. Finally, the timing and effective dates for publication of the required Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Final Rule will be covered.
