MoCRA Enforcement is Right Around the Corner! Are You Ready?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is set to start enforcing the requirements of the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act (MoCRA) on July 1, 2024. Manufacturers, distributors, or packers of cosmetic products must comply with the requirements to avoid an enforcement action. 

MoCRA Background 

In recent years, the cosmetics industry has experienced exponential growth, with new products being introduced almost daily. The average American consumer uses six to 12 cosmetics products daily. This growth has resulted in a need for more comprehensive regulation of cosmetic products to ensure consumer safety. 

MoCRA was passed in 2022 and aims to modernize and strengthen cosmetic regulations in the United States. MoCRA replaced the previous Cosmetic Act, which had not been updated since 1938.  

Subsequent to the bill’s passage, the FDA issued regulations implementing the law. In issuing MoCRA regulations, FDA’s aim was to help ensure the overall safety of cosmetic products, and expand the Agency’s ability to trace and track non-compliant products and facilities. MoCRA brings significant changes to the cosmetic industry and regulations under MoCRA impact the entire lifecycle of cosmetics products from manufacturing to marketing. 

MoCRA Requirements 

New MoCRA requirements include:

  • FDA registration for cosmetics facilities 
  • Product listings for each cosmetic product 
  • Adverse event reporting
