US FDA Proposes Increase in Fees for Color Additive Certification Services - Public Comment Period Extended
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing an increase in fees for color additive certification services under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act. The fees are used to support the FDA's color certification program and the increase is necessary to cover increased operating costs. The public consultation period for the proposed rule has been extended to March 10, 2023, and interested parties are encouraged to submit comments online or in writing. The proposed fee increase would raise the cost of certification services by 10 cents per pound and includes changes to the minimum fee, repacks of certified color additives, and color additive mixtures.
