What is the Expert Panel's evaluation process?

The primary goal of a safety evaluation by the Expert Panel for Fragrance Safety is to ensure the safe use of fragrance materials. Maintaining a rigorous and transparent safety evaluation process ensures that the scientific opinions of the Panel will continue to strengthen the credibility of IFRA Standards, as well as the credibility of the IFRA member associations.

The transparency of the process is primarily through the publication of the Expert Panel evaluation conclusions and the underlying science in the peer-reviewed literature.
