The U.S. House of Representatives has approved by voice vote a bill (H.R. 4250) intended to speed up the review of the safety and effectiveness of nonprescription sunscreen active ingredients. It was forwarded to the Senate on July 29, 2014, where an identical bill (S. 2141) has been pending since March. The “Sunscreen Innovation Act” would impose certain timeframes on a generally recognized as safe and effective (GRASE) review of these ingredients and require a GRASE determination within 300 days of the application’s filing. The proposed order making that determination would be subject to public review and comment.
