U.S. FDA Labeling Regulations
The U.S. Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) defines “labeling” as all labels and other written, printed, or graphic matter upon any article or any of its containers or wrappers, or accompanying such article. The term ‘accompanying’ is interpreted liberally to mean more than physical association with the food product. It extends to posters, tags, pamphlets, circulars, booklets, brochures, instructions, websites, etc.
Labeling mistakes result in more than 22% of all detentions in the United States.

The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act (NLEA), which amended the FFDCA requires most foods to bear specific nutrition and ingredient labeling and requires food, beverage, and dietary supplement labels that bear nutrient content claims and certain health messages to comply with specific requirements. Furthermore, the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) amended the FFDCA, in part, by defining “dietary supplements,” adding specific labeling requirements for dietary supplements, and providing for optional labeling statements. Registrar Corp helps companies modify their food, beverage, or dietary supplement labeling to comply with these and other U.S. FDA regulations.
The U.S. FDA has many labeling-related requirements to help assure that medical devices are used safely and effectively, including, but not limited to, provisions on misbranding in Section 502 of the FFDCA. Such labeling requirements may address adequate instructions for use, servicing instructions, adequate warnings against uses that may be dangerous to health or information that may be necessary for the protection of users. Registrar Corp helps companies modify their medical device labeling to comply with these and other U.S. FDA regulations.
The FFDCA prohibits the distribution of cosmetic products which are adulterated or misbranded. A cosmetic product is considered adulterated if it contains a substance which may make the product harmful to consumers under customary conditions of use or if its labeling claims are false or misleading, if it does not bear the required labeling information, or if the container is made or filled in a deceptive manner. Furthermore, some U.S. States, such as California, have additional labeling requirements. Registrar Corp helps companies modify their cosmetic labeling to help avoid charges of adulteration and misbranding as well as comply with U.S. FDA and State regulations.
