Cosmetic product facility registration and product listing are not available at this time. FDA will provide more information on the launch date for electronic submission of cosmetics in the coming weeks. Industry will soon be able to use this platform for cosmetics, as well as drug registration and listing submissions. Stay tuned for implementation of FDA Direct, the latest FDA submission tool for drugs and cosmetics with a new look and menu structures. For more details on the cosmetics platform see: FDA Issues Draft Guidance on Registration and Listing of Cosmetic Product Facilities and Products.
