The Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD)
association supports The Safe Cosmetics Modernization Act, which was reintroduced by US Congressman Peter Sessions (R-TX), chairman of the House Committee on Rules. The Safe Cosmetics Modernization Act was first brought forward by Sessions last term and identified as HR 4075.
The bill modernizes and improves the Food and Drug Administration’s
ability to assure the safety of cosmetic products by examining ingredient safety, establishing manufacturing processes, and tracking and quickly addressing adverse health impacts from potentially unsafe products and requiring that manufacturers be registered with the FDA.
