Color Additives in food, drugs, cosmetics, and medical devices require approval by U.S. FDA. The form and frequency of approval depends on the particular Color Additive. For most Color Additives, the appropriate approval process is U.S. FDA's Color Batch Certification program, which requires approval of each batch.
For Color Batch Certification, manufacturers provide U.S. FDA with a representative sample of each Color Additive batch along with the required documentation. U.S. FDA analyzes the Color Additive sample to ensure that it meets the specifications required for certifiable Color Additives. For some Color Additives, Color Batch Certification may not be appropriate.
