Cleaning for COVID-19 – Importing Cleaning Products: Who Regulates You?
Co-Authored by Denise Calle
A year into the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are in full enforcement mode carefully monitoring novel products claiming to treat, mitigate, or “kill” COVID-19. Compliance advisories issued at the beginning of the pandemic are now being replaced with enforcement advisories. Manufacturers, importers, distributors, and others engaged in the production or sale of products claiming to mitigate or “kill” COVID-19 should be more cautious than ever when developing product claims for both product labels and marketing material or alternatively, confirm products comply with the numerous regulations governing COVID-19 cleaning products.
EPA and FDA have stated each is coordinating with the U.S. Department of Justice, CBP, and other PGAs to bring the full force of the law against those selling or otherwise distributing violative products.
During the webinar, our international trade attorneys will discuss top labeling dos and don’ts to lower your risk of EPA and FDA enforcement, while offering best practices and other pathways to market your product outside of the FDA’s and/or EPA’s jurisdiction. The webinar will provide an overview of the labor some and costly EPA and FDA registration process as well as how to take advantage of fast track options for required registrations.
Manufacturers, importers, distributors, and others engaged in the production or sale of products claiming to mitigate or “kill” COVID-19 are encouraged to attend our one-hour webinar, “FDA/EPA Cleaning for COVID-19 – Importing Cleaning Products: Who Regulates You?” on March 24, 2021 at 12:00 PM.
