ACI’s 11th Annual Legal, Regulatory & Compliance Forum on Cosmetics & Personal Care Products is back on March 20–21, 2024, in New York City.

The “Modernization of Cosmetic Regulation Act of 2022” (MoCRA) on the federal level has expanded the FDA’s jurisdiction over the cosmetic industry. With MoCRA currently in its initial phases, businesses within the cosmetics industry should proactively anticipate and ready themselves for impending modifications.

States, particularly California, Washington, Maine, and Ohio, are actively driving further reforms and intensifying regulations on harmful chemicals and contaminants in cosmetic products and their packaging.

This year’s agenda features sessions on implementing MoCRA, safeguarding brands against class actions, navigating compliance with PFAS and Prop65, interpreting FTC guidance on endorsements, exploring ESG and sustainability in the beauty industry, and addressing challenges related to IP, data privacy, and considerations of generative AI.

Don’t miss out on the latest developments and interactive discussions this March!
