IFRA violator cleared

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

International Fragrance Association has determined the fragrance supplier fingered in July for using a banned material is in fact not in violation of the association's Code of Practice. IFRA discovered a product containing a prohibited substance during its third round of random testing (1"The Rose Sheet" July 13, 2009). Now it says the material in question was supplied before the material was banned under IFRA's standards and the fragrance supplier was fully compliant. Use of the material was discontinued after the ban was enacted, according to IFRA. "I am pleased that we have established that the fragrance house strictly adhered to the IFRA standards," says Jean-Pierre Houri, IFRA director general. "This incident demonstrates that the IFRA Compliance Program is robust and effective ensuring that IFRA standards are adhered to worldwide and that consumers can continue to enjoy the safe use of fragrances." IFRA's confidentiality policy prevents it from disclosing the substance, product, manufacturer or supplier involved. The group began an annual random test of 50 fragrance products from around the world in 2007; this was the first reported non-compliant product (2"The Rose Sheet" June 2, 2008)
