The Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act (MoCRA) is one of the first major regulatory changes to the cosmetics industry in over 80 years. This long-awaited move significantly changes the current regulatory framework for the cosmetics industry, bringing federal regulation into the 21st century.
As one of the first major amendments to the FDA’s cosmetics authority since the FD&C Act was enacted, MoCRA grants FDA the authority and funding to impose new regulations for cosmetics. This act represents a combination of efforts from lawmakers, the FDA, consumer and environmental groups, and the beauty and personal care industry to ensure that cosmetics remain safe for consumer use.
Key highlights are summarized in the table below.
Here is a closer look at a few immediate steps that you can take to prepare your organization for compliance.
