590.600 WigsCompliance Policy Guide 7128.05


Sec. 590.600 Wigs (CPG 7128.05)


Although we have expressed the belief that wigs for use on humans are subject to the cosmetic provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, it is the present position of FDA that we will not assert jurisdiction over wigs.

Our position on wigs, of course, will be promptly reconsidered if evidence of hazard to the user is encountered.
