PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR SUNSCREEN DRUG PRODUCTS FOR OVER-THE-COUNTER HUMAN USE

Executive Summary by the FDA: “The Food and Drug Administration is publishing this proposed rule as part of the regulatory proceeding to put into effect a final monograph [1] for nonprescription, OTC sunscreen drug products under the OTC Drug Review”… “We emphasize that this proposed rule does not represent a conclusion by FDA that the sunscreen active ingredients included in the Stayed 1999 Final Monograph but proposed here as Category III are unsafe for use in sunscreens. Rather, we are requesting additional information on these ingredients so that we can evaluate their GRASE status in light of changed conditions, including substantially increased sunscreen usage and exposure and evolving information about the potential risks associated with these products since they were originally evaluated.” Click to continue
