FDA's Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP) is a reporting system for use by manufacturers, packers, and distributors of cosmetic products that are in commercial distribution in the United States.
The VCRP helps FDA in carrying out its duty to regulate cosmetics sold in the United States.
Because MoCRA requires certain companies to register their facilities and list their products with FDA, FDA is creating a new system to handle the large number of submissions that will result. As a result, FDA will no longer use the voluntary registration system and will no longer accept and process VCRP submissions.
FDA asks cosmetics businesses to hold off on registering with them until they make the new system publicly available. The programme being developed for facility registrations and product listings required by MoCRA will not receive data from the VCRP.
FDA has ceased accepting and processing applications to the VCRP. FDA is developing a system for submission of the facility registrations and product listings mandated by MoCRA and will provide further updates on its forthcoming availability. The programme being developed for facility registrations and product listings required by MoCRA will not receive data from the VCRP.
