I. Background

FDA, like other government agencies, is taking the necessary steps to ensure the Agency is prepared to continue our vital public health mission in the event that our day-to-day operations are impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency. Therefore, we are canceling or postponing all non-essential meetings through the month of April. We will reassess on an ongoing basis for future months.

Accordingly, the FDA public meeting entitled, “International Cooperation on Cosmetics Regulation (ICCR)—Preparation for ICCR—14 Meeting” announced in the Federal Register of March 3, 2020 (85 FR 12569), is canceled. Additionally, we will be closing the docket to public comments, since the purpose of the docket was to obtain information for the FDA public meeting and to help FDA prepare for the ICCR-14 meeting. Thus, because we are canceling the FDA public meeting, public comments are no longer necessary.

As of March 20, 2020, the status of the ICCR-14 meeting itself remains to be determined.

Please contact Deborah Smegal in FDA's Office of Cosmetics and Colors (See FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT) with questions.
