The Modernization of Cosmetic Regulation Act of 2022,” (MoCRA) is now a reality on the Federal level.
State legislators and consumer groups will continue to push for further reforms. Just before the end of the 2022, President Biden signed the “Modernization of Cosmetic Regulation Act of 2022,” (MoCRA) into law — essentially giving the FDA greater authority to regulate the cosmetic industry. This long-awaited law creates new requirements for manufacturers in terms of product safety, ingredients, labelling, and registration. The states have also been active in the space, with legislative measures concerning the ban of PFAS chemicals, sunscreen regulation, anti-cruelty measures, and consumer safety. California continues to tighten rules and regulations the cosmetics and personal care industries, with new restrictions on products containing harmful chemicals, packaging and labelling requirements, and seemingly endless, Prop 65 litigation.
Attend ACI’s 10th Annual Legal, Regulatory, and Compliance Forum on Cosmetics and Personal Care Products to ensure you receive timely advice, as always, from our prestigious faculty of government officials, consumer protection advocates, leading in-house counsel, and premier law firm attorneys.
