The US FDA has recently published an additional draft guidance document called “Registration and Listing of Cosmetic Product Facilities and Products: Guidance for Industry” as it relates to the cosmetic regulation overhaul under MOCRA.

Although companies around the world are eagerly awaiting details about how to comply with MOCRA for their products sold on the US marketplace, there is still much to learn! The FDA stated that the electronic facility registration and product listing portal will only be available in October (there will be a paper format as well).

Until then companies can assess whether they are eligible for any exemptions (i.e., small business, etc) and prepare by compiling relevant information for

The guidance otherwise, provided definitions, exemptions, and a Q&A format explanation of some of the requirements.

Stay tuned for further MOCRA guidance updates!
