IFRA reorganizes

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

The International Fragrance Association will realign its regional and national associations "to achieve greater efficiencies and industry responsiveness," according to an April 14 release. The reorganization will form North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia-Pacific regional bodies under the global IFRA banner. For example, the Fragrance Materials Association in the U.S. has agreed to start doing business as IFRA North America. Each regional body will be represented on the IFRA board and have voting rights proportional to its market share. Other board votes will be divided among IFRA "Regular Members" Firmenich, Givaudan, International Flavors & Fragrances, Robertet, Symrise and Takasago International. Currently accounting for about 90% of global fragrance volume, IFRA says a new funding structure will help it reach its goal of representing 100% of the global industry. Moreover, the realignment "will concentrate resources, enabling a more effective response to the growing societal, regulatory and scientific issues being faced by the modern fragrance industry," the organization says. IFRA reports 100% compliance: In an April 21 release, IFRA notes that no banned substances were found in its fourth Compliance Program cycle. An independent panel randomly tested 50 fragrance products - chosen from a pool of 450 products in 10 countries - between May 2009 and April 2010, determining them all compliant with IFRA's Code of Practice
