Regulatory Strategy

Compliance Gurus can provide cosmetic manufacturers with a comprehensive plan, to ensure adherence to the regulatory requirements of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act. We can provide guidance related to product ingredients, labeling, packaging and post-market advertising and promotion.

Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP)

Compliance Gurus can assist cosmetic manufacturers, packagers and distributors with VCRP post-market reporting. Our services include filing cosmetic establishment registrations, product ingredient statements and product formulation amendments.

cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices)

The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act mandates all cosmetic manufacturers, storage facilities, and distributors to comply with good manufacturing practices. Compliance Gurus can create or redesign your existing quality management system, in conformance with contemporary regulatory requirements.

Part 11

Cosmetic organizations utilizing electronic systems to create, modify, maintain, archive, retrieve or transmit data records, mandated by the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act or FDA regulations, must comply with 21 CFR 11. Part 11 also applies to recordkeeping measures, which assign electronic signatures. Compliance Gurus can conduct a Part 11 assessment of your company’s electronic records and signatures, and revise or implement a compliant Part 11 protocol.

Auditing

The Compliance Gurus team are experts at auditing internal and external regulatory systems, processes and procedures. Whether you have received an FDA 482: Inspection Notice, need to evaluate a foreign supplier or want to perform an FDA mock audit, as part of your inspection readiness plan, we can assist you. We can provide a detailed, comprehensive gap analysis of your company and vendor regulatory requirements, to identify compliance related deficiencies. Upon discovery, regulatory gaps will be analyzed, from a risk management perspective, and can be addressed through the implementation of a corrective and preventive action plan.

Training

Compliance Gurus can provide employee training to small and large groups. All of our corporate trainers possess advanced degrees and have ample years of experience working in the FDA regulated industry. Cosmetic organizations can customize their educational curriculum, by choosing from our comprehensive selection of FDA and cosmetic product related content.

Currently, our training topics include: FDA History, The Organization of the FDA, History of Cosmetic Regulation, The Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, Good Manufacturing Practices for Cosmetic Industry and Current Trends in Cosmetic Regulation.

FDA Interaction and Remediation

Direct interaction with the FDA is a stressful, apprehensive experience, even when conducted under the best of circumstances. Compliance Gurus is available to alleviate your corporate anxiety, by offering support during this challenging time. If you have received a Form 482: Notice of Inspection, we can prepare you or the audit by providing pre-inspection guidance. In addition, we are available to accompany you, during the inspection, to help mediate any points of contention between the parties.

Compliance Gurus offers comprehensive remediation services for organizations receiving a Form 483 or Warning Letter, after FDA inspection. We can structure and implement an effective remediation plan to efficiently address any compliance deficiencies or violations. If your company has received a Warning Letter, we can author a satisfactory Company Response and devise a corrective action plan, in adherence to the 15-day response timeline.

In addition, our consultants are available to assist larger corporations with corporate compliance or regulatory remediation projects, which result from a signed Consent Decree or Corporate Integrity Agreement.
