RIFM Opens Fragrance, Flavor Database to the Public

February 7, 2008

Beginning in 2008, the Research Institute of Fragrance Materials (RIFM) database will be made available to persons, firms or corporations who are not eligible for membership in RIFM or Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) but are directly engaged in a business in the fragrance or flavor industry.

According to the authority, in light of REACH, opening the database to nonmember subscribers will allow them an easy mechanism to retrieve needed data.

The RIFM database can function as a focused literature search on fragrance ingredients in preparation for REACH registration. It was established in 1983 and through extensive research, testing and monitoring of literature, RIFM maintains the database as a comprehensive source of physical-chemical, toxicological and eco-toxicological data associated with known fragrance and flavor materials.

RIFM has developed a database policy with guidelines on how the database may be used for REACH. Non-member subscriptions do not include access to member company or RIFM-sponsored full study reports. More info:
