Cosmetic Product Listing and Facility Registration: What You Need to Know

New requirements for cosmetics companies to submit product listings and facility registrations to the Food and Drug Administration come into effect July 1. These requirements cover a broad range of items such as makeup products, nail polishes, shaving creams and other grooming products, perfumes, face and body cleansers, haircare products, moisturizers, and other skincare products.

Under a law enacted in 2022, cosmetic product manufacturers and processors must register their facilities with the FDA, update content within 60 days of any changes, and renew their registrations every two years. In addition, each marketed cosmetic product (including its ingredients) must be listed with the FDA and updates must be provided annually. There are exemptions to these requirements for certain small businesses as well as certain products and facilities that are subject to requirements for drugs and medical devices.

Failure to comply with the law and all its provisions (such as registration and good manufacturing practices) could result in detention or refusal of cosmetic imports.

For more information on this and other FDA issues, please contact FDA consultant Domenic Veneziano at (202) 734-3939 or via email.
