SaferWorldbyDesign: Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA)
SaferWorldbyDesign is an initiative aimed at improving the safety of consumer products by providing innovative solutions for product development. The platform is focused on integrating advanced computational and experimental New Approach Methods (NAMs) to help identify and manage potential health risks associated with consumer products, such as cosmetics.
We provide a unique tiered strategy tailored to meet the specific needs and budget of each company. By using in silico tools like SaferSkin™, complimentary in vitro methods, and taking full advantage of existing data and established testing, this approach offers an efficient and cost-effective way to enhance the safety of consumer products and give customers more options and access to relevant data at each stage of product development.
Recently, the US government has taken significant steps to strengthen the regulation of cosmetic products and ensure their safety for consumers. On December 29, 2022, President Joe Biden signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, of 2023, which includes the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA). This new legislation establishes federal standards for cosmetic business registration, product listing, record-keeping, adverse event reporting, safety substantiation, GMP, recalls, and more. These regulations will apply to domestic and international companies that distribute cosmetic products in the US.
SaferWorldbyDesign is uniquely positioned to aid the implementation of the new cosmetic legislation by utilizing our extensive knowledge infrastructure to provide regulatory guidance and early-stage product development support to companies in the cosmetics industry. This aids companies in making informed decisions regarding the safety of their products, reducing the likelihood of costly recalls and legal liabilities.
Overall, the new Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 represents an important step towards improving the safety of cosmetic products in the US market. SaferWorldbyDesign is committed to supporting the implementation of this new legislation and helping companies in the cosmetics industry ensure the safety of their products for consumers.
