Paper Registration for the Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP)

FDA has developed an online registration system, intended to make it easier to participate in the Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP). You may still use paper forms. However, we strongly encourage you to participate in VCRP online, to avoid delays that may occur in processing of VCRP paper forms.

For questions not answered in the resources below, contact the VCRP Staff at VCRP@fda.gov

  • Registration of a Cosmetic Product Establishment - Form FDA 2511 (PDF 1MB)
  • Cosmetic Product Ingredient Statement (CPIS) - Forms FDA 2512 (PDF 1MB) and 2512a (PDF 1MB)
