IFRA and our French member association, Prodarom, will host two roundtables on Thursday 10 February on Industrial leadership & future of the fragrance industry in France and Europe and Resilience, Green & Digital transition.
The roundtables, a local event under the European Union's 'Industry Weeks' program, will will focus on how the fragrance industry can contribute to the resilience of the sector and its role as part of the Green and Digital transition.
IFRA has joined more than 20 other European and international trade associations in signing a cross-industry joint statement on Better Regulation.
The statement gives recommendations on further improving the European policy-making process, calling on the European Commission and other EU institutions to create EU laws based on evidence-based impact assessments and to allow sufficient time and resources to be allocated at all phases of the decision-making process.
The signatories also call for consultations to be conducted via a thorough process involving experts and input from all relevant stakeholders, and for key regulatory provisions, such as definitions and scope, to be agreed upon and clearly defined at a primary legislative stage.
The statement asks for the impact on innovation to be considered in all legislative initiatives and for EU legislation to be implemented and enforced in a harmonized way, safeguarding the EU single market.
The International Fragrance Association is one of more than 20 signatories of a joint letter to the European Commission on the opportunities of digital product information.

The International Fragrance Association has given a cautious welcome to the publication of a new EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS), signaling its willingness to contribute to plans that support environmental protection and innovation and that are based on sound science.
As the voice of fragrance manufacturers and suppliers, IFRA is committed to consumer safety and to sustainable development across their many dimensions by continuously looking to create truly sustainable and innovative solutions.
IFRA has also joined a cross-industry call to the European Commission not to overhaul the European Union's chemical rules.
A letter to Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, coordinated by the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) and co-signed by IFRA and 17 other industry associations, says that the development of the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability should not lead to a root-and-branch rethink of the EU's REACH chemicals legislation.
The IFRA Europe Week, 'A sense of heritage, a sense of the future', scheduled for June 2020, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Week, which will feature an exhibition, along with debates and social events, is provisionally rescheduled for June 2021.
Further details will follow soon.

The letter outlines the opportunities that digitalization can bring to the European Union's citizens and businesses and calls for further action and leadership from the European Commission to make Europe fit for the digital age.
A fixture on the Brussels calendar, the IFRA Europe Fragrance Party took place for the ninth time on 12 September 2019.
