Learn About FDA Guidelines and Regulations for Importing Cosmetics

In June 2017, the FDA issued a letter in response to a request raised for checking the quality of cosmetics imported into the United States. According to this letter, all imported cosmetics regulated by FDA must “meet the same FDA requirements as domestic products”. “Approximately 2,000 cosmetic lines are refused each year, for reasons including labeling violations, the use of illegal color additives, and the appearance of contamination with filth or other contaminants.”, and the letter continued, "Of the 9,871 cosmetic imports physically examined by the FDA in 2016, inspectors reported adverse findings with 1,474 of those imports, a rate of 15%."

Join this session with expert speaker Jennifer Diaz, Esq., where you will learn about FDA laws and regulations, as well as the top reasons for FDA enforcement of cosmetics. The session will provide a review of the FDA import process, FDA notices of action, the FDA detention and refusal process, import alerts, detention without physical examination, typical U.S. customs liquidated damages, and more.
