The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that it will move cosmetics regulation and color certification functions out of Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) and into the Office of the Chief Scientist. This proposed move will better align the expertise of the agency’s cosmetics subject matter experts with the Chief Scientist who is focused on research, science, and innovation that underpins the agency’s regulatory mission, and recognize the evolution and innovation in this product space. Further, this shift will leverage the FDA’s areas of expertise across the agency as it works to implement the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act (MoCRA) of 2022.
