MSL establishes US corporation to enhance MoCRA support

Published: 2-Apr-2024

Leading regulatory and microbiological testing house, MSL Solution Providers is proud to introduce its new US corporation, MSL Regulatory Solutions Inc

By setting up a subsidiary in the US, MSL is enhancing the in-market support it can offer to cosmetic and personal care brands selling their products into US. It also enables the company to act as US Agent for facilities that require registration in the USA under the recently passed US law, ‘The Modernization of Cosmetic Regulations Act of 2022’ (MoCRA).

MoCRA increases the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) powers, bringing enhanced scrutiny and increasing the safety of cosmetic products sold into the US. Companies have until 1 st July 2024 to comply with the requirements related to cosmetic product facility registration and cosmetic product listing, to maintain access to this $430 billion market.

With its extensive experience in working with US cosmetics and personal care product manufacturers, MSL can help businesses prepare and ensure that they stay compliant when the enforcement comes into force.

Its MoCRA Responsible Person Support Service includes: acting as US agent; facility registrations; product listings; FDA and state regulatory compliance checks on formulations; ingredient safety support; development of Product Information Files (PIFs); artwork checks; record keeping and collection of adverse events; creation of adverse event Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs); accelerated stability studies; preservative efficacy (challenge) testing.

Alex Fotheringham, Operations Director at MSL Solution Providers, comments, ‘We are committed to helping cosmetics companies get set for business, in light of the new rules that are in place due to MoCRA – establishing MSL Regulatory Solutions Inc. is just one of the steps we have taken to expand our offering and support customers that sell products into the US. Whilst there is still some breathing space until the first deadline, our advice is to get prepared in order to continue trading in the US compliantly from July 2024.’

A complete service provider, MSL offers an integrated regulatory and laboratory testing service for cosmetics, personal care, and disinfection products, helping companies stay compliant with current regulations. Its in-house accredited labs provide a comprehensive range of standard tests, as well as tailored solutions to support clients’ individual requirements.
