Modernization of Cosmetic Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA)

On December 29th, 2022, President Biden signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (Pub. L. 117-328) into law, which included the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA).

MoCRA added Section 607 to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&CA) to establish requirements for cosmetic product facility registration and product listing. It enhances the FDA's authority, establishes a uniform national framework, and promotes safety and innovation.

If you are a cosmetic brand or cosmetic manufacturer and have distributed or marketed cosmetics in the U.S. prior to December 29, 2022, you have important MoCRA compliance requirements to meet by December 29, 2023.
