FDA revoking Voluntary Cosmetic Product Experience reporting program in full.

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA MEDWATCH EXPANSION TO COSMETICS UNDER CONSIDERATION by the agency as an alternative to the Voluntary Cosmetic Product Experience reporting program, which is being abolished. In a final rule published in the Aug. 12 Federal Register, FDA states it is "revoking" part 730 of the Voluntary Cosmetic Reporting Program, or the VCPE, "in its entirety" but is considering "enhancing its MedWatch program to include cosmetic products." FDA published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking in June 1996 announcing its intent to discontinue the VCPE program ("The Rose Sheet" June 17, 1996, p. 4). The ruling is part of President Clinton's "Reinventing Government" initiative to streamline government and to eliminate or reform outdated programs across all federal agencies.
