The International Fragrance Association (IFRA)
Code of Practice will soon implement changes to its 49th Amendment as early as the first week of September 2019. According to Lebermuth
, due to the scope of the changes in this Amendment, the typical 14 – 19 month transitional compliance period for existing fragrance creations has been extended to 25 months, and the 2 – 7 month compliance period for new creations has been extended to 13 months after the date of the Letter of Notification (step 6 of the process). The Consultation Phase (step 5 of the process) has ended as of July 21, 2019.
“These changes will not only affect Lebermuth, but the entire fragrance industry,” said the chief perfumer for Lebermuth, Jill Costa “We have already begun planning in preparation for the Letter of Notification, which can be sent as early as the first week of September 2019.”
