The International Cooperation on Cosmetics Regulation (ICCR) is an international group of cosmetics regulatory authorities including members from Brazil, Canada, the European Union, and the United States. These members and industry trade associations meet annually to discuss safety and regulatory issues. The ICCR multilateral framework is intended to harmonize regulations and reduce regulatory burden while maintaining consumer safety. The next meeting will be held July 9-11 in Montreal, Canada.
FDA announced (84 Fed. Reg. 18850 (May 1, 2019)) on May 1 that it will hold a public meeting on June 5 from 2-4 pm in the Harvey W. Wiley Federal Building in FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Nutrition’s College Park, Maryland facility. Registration for the meeting must be received by May 22 for in-person or phone (listening only) participation.
The purpose of this public meeting is to “invite public input on various topics pertaining to the regulation of cosmetics. [FDA] may use this input to help [FDA] prepare for the ICCR-13 meeting.” Suggested topics include “proposals for future ICCR agenda items, data, information, or views . . . on issues pending at the public meeting or a topic related to a previous meeting.”
