MoCRA is the Modernization of Cosmetic Regulations Act of 2022. It was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President on December 29, 2022, as part of the huge spending bill for the year. It is the first major update to the cosmetics laws since the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act was first approved in 1938.

Ensuring the safety of cosmetic products sold in the United States is the key concern of MoCRA. It also gives the FDA some additional authority that was overlooked when the law was written in 1938.

The sections of MoCRA each address different cosmetic safety issues which will go into effect over the next 1 – 4 years. As a result of our work over the last ten years, small businesses are exempt from several of the requirements of MoCRA.
