What We Are Doing

Meetings in Washington DC

Part of Legislative Advocacy is meeting with our Representatives and Senators in Washington and providing them with information to make sure they understand our industry. By knowing who we are and what we do, those Representatives and Senators are much more likely to take the needs of our industry into account when they propose or vote on legislation.

In the last 5 years we have had literally hundreds of meetings, and as a result we are acknowledged as representing a valid industry with needs that should be accomodated during the legislative process.

Citizen Petition re: Business Name and Address

In 2015, the FTC updated their regulations concerning the street address to state: (important part bolded)

The statement of the place of business shall include the street address, city state, and zip code; however, the street address may be omitted if it is listed in a readily accessible, widely published, and publicly available resource, including but not limited to a printed directory, electronic database, or Web site.

In April 2019, since no action had been taken by the FDA to update their regulations accordingly, we filed a Citizen Petition with the FDA requesting that they update their regulations concerning the business name and address on a cosmetic product label to match the the FTC regulations quoted above.

Read the full petition.

The Peition is on file at regulations.gov as Docket #FDA-2019-P-2122 and is open for comments.
