Executive Summary

The Research Institute for Fragrance Materials is opening its Expert Panel review process to the public "in alignment with the fragrance industry's move towards greater transparency about its ingredients," says the scientific arm of the International Fragrance Association April 2. The move should "emphasize the credibility of its scientific methodology," according to the release. In an effort to enhance dialogue in the fragrance community, the organization is requesting information on fragrance materials in advance of meetings. The panel expects to next meet in early May to discuss macrocyclic lactones and lactides, macrocyclic ketones and ketones cyclopentanone and cyclopentenone. Information on the compounds will be accepted through April 16 and compiled as background to inform panel's discussion, RIFM says. Requests to personally present information at the meeting also will be considered
