Voluntary Cosmetic Reporting Program

The Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP) is an FDA post-market reporting system for use by manufacturers, packers, and distributors of cosmetic products that are in commercial distribution in the United States. The VCRP helps FDA in its mission to protect consumers, gives cosmetic manufacturers and distributors access to valuable information and supports the safety evaluation of cosmetic ingredients. The greater the participation by the cosmetic industry, the better this program works and benefits companies directly through their participation.
