Last Thursday, March 23rd, SafetyCall attended the first of the Personal Care Product’s Council’s (PCPC) Modernization of Cosmetics Reform Act (MoCRA) Working Group meetings in New York. Over 100 cosmetics industry leaders and representatives attended the in-depth discussion co-hosted by PCPC and their legal team at Covington & Burling LLC. The session focused on clarification of the law as it was passed and robust discussion on topics industry would like PCPC’s assistance in clarifying with FDA such as fragrance labeling, safety substantiation, product listing, facility registration, and adverse event reporting, during which SafetyCall contributed insight and questions. Enforcement on several facets of the new law, such as adverse event reporting, begin December 29th, 2023.
SafetyCall continues to closely monitor FDA’s action on MoCRA, including it’s most recent announcement on Monday, March 27th regarding the discontinuation of the Voluntary Cosmetics Registration Program (VCRP) in favor of creating a new pathway for companies to register their facilities and list their products. SafetyCall will be attending the second of PCPC’s MoCRA Working Group meetings during the Legal & Regulatory Meeting in Quebec in May.
Stay tuned for further emails blasts for key updates on implementation of MoCRA and adverse event reporting.
