FDA Issues Guidance on its Enforcement Delay for Cosmetics

Posted by Timothy Miller on 11/8/23 5:00 PM

In a guidance document published November 8, 2023, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it will delay enforcement of the requirements under the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA) to give the industry sufficient time for compliance.

Under MoCRA, FDA will require facilities that produce cosmetics to be registered with FDA and renew their registration every two years. In addition, each cosmetic product will have to be listed with FDA and listings will need to be updated annually. FDA asserts that it “will be ready to accept registration and listing information by the statutory deadline of December 29, 2023, and we encourage companies to meet that deadline if they are able to do so.”

Enforcement of registration requirements under MoCRA will begin to be enforced on July 1, 2024.
