The enactment of the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act (MoCRA) on December 29, 2022 brought important changes to the existing United States Cosmetics Regulations. Previous voluntary manufacturing/processing facilities registration and product information filing are now obligatory with set compliance deadlines for existing and new facilities/products. Adequate substantiation of safety for cosmetics is required, and serious adverse events must be reported. Rulemaking, mandated by MoCRA will be rolling out in the near future for:
-fragrance allergens required to be listed on product labels,
-establishing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs),
Information on the risk of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contained in cosmetic products will also be forthcoming.
