Withdrawal of Temporary Hand Sanitizer Policies in the USA

10/27/2021 | 05:58am EST
Effective December 31, 2021, the US FDA will withdraw the temporary policies for producing alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
SAFEGUARDS | Cosmetics, Personal Care & HouseholdNO. 144/21

Considering a stable supply of alcohol-based hand sanitizer from traditional suppliers, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on October 12, 2021 the withdrawal of temporary policies issued in March 2020 for non-drug manufacturers to produce certain alcohol-based hand sanitizers and alcohol for use in hand sanitizers during the public health emergency.

Effective December 31, 2021, production of hand sanitizer shall comply with the tentative final monograph for over-the-counter topical antiseptics and relevant Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) requirements.

Producers who have been producing hand sanitizers under the temporary policies must stop making new hand sanitizer on December 31, 2021, and must stop distribution of any remaining hand sanitizer products produced under the guidances by March 31, 2022.

Producers that had been producing hand sanitizers under the temporary policies should not distribute the manufactured hand sanitizers after March 31, 2022.
