Further, under HR 5786, the FDA would be required to declare safe, probited and restricted ingredients no later than two years after the date of enactment. In addition, it must compile a priority assessment list of more than 300 ingredients in addition to the above assessed ingredients that require more information for a safety assessment.
As noted, to fund the additional manpower required to enforce HR 5786, the bill requires the FDA to establish fees. These fees would be assessed on companies with annual sales of over US $1 million, and would be based upon the company's gross reciepts and sales.
If an ingredient is declared probitied by the FDA, products containing this ingredient cannot be manufactured, imported, distributed or marketed in the United States under HR 5786. Similarly, if a company fails to declare all information to the FDA, they also cannot manufacture or distribute products in the United States.
