Deadline to Register Cosmetic Facilities and List Cosmetic Products Fast Approaches

Companies subject to the requirements of the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA) should take note that the deadline to register cosmetic facilities and list cosmetic products is fast approaching on July 1, 2024.

As we reported previously, MoCRA imposed extensive new requirements related to cosmetic products marketed in the United States. Among its many provisions, MoCRA imposes requirements for annual cosmetic product facility registration and cosmetic product listing.

We provided an overview of the facility registration and product listing requirements here, here, and here, and additionally covered the draft version of the Cosmetics Direct portal here. The final version of Cosmetics Direct — the electronic submission portal to facilitate submissions of facility registrations and product listings — is now up and running here.

If you are interested in more information about MoCRA, would like guidance on complying with these new requirements, or would like assistance submitting cosmetic facility registrations and cosmetic product listings to FDA, please contact ArentFox Schiff’s Food, Drug, Medical Device & Cosmetic practice group.
