IFRA's upcoming amendment "very light"

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

The International Fragrance Association's 45 Amendment to its Code of Practice, introduced this year, "will hardly affect the palettes of perfumers," states IFRA Director General Jean-Pierre Houri in a June 2 release. Rumors that the upcoming version of the amendment includes new policies on furocoumarins or methyleugenol (an essential component of the smell of roses) are simply "wrong," he says, noting there are only seven changes to the amendment overall. "Previous years have seen quite heavy amendments due to the change over to our new Quantitative Risk Assessment approach," Houri says. "However, this is nearly complete and is reflected in this year's very light amendment." IFRA's Research Institute for Fragrance Materials has bumped heads with industry representatives and European scientific authorities previously regarding its increasingly refined QRA (1"The Rose Sheet" Oct. 27, 2008)
