Essential deadlines under the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA) come into effect July 1, 2024. MoCRA brings significant changes to the cosmetic industry and will impact your company if you manufacture, distribute, or pack a cosmetic product in the United States.

What is Required Under MoCRA

MoCRA replaces the previous Cosmetic Act, which had not been updated since 1938.

New MoCRA requirements include:

  • FDA registration for cosmetics facilities
  • Product listings for each cosmetic product
  • Adverse event reporting
  • Safety substantiation
  • Compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs)
  • Fragrance allergen labeling

MoCRA also gives the FDA new records access and mandatory recall authority. In issuing MoCRA regulations, FDA’s aim is to help ensure the overall safety of cosmetic products, and significantly expand the Agency’s ability to trace and track non-compliant products and facilities.
