Webinar: Introduction to the 2024 IFRA Volume of Use Survey

IFRA is preparing for the next Volume of Use (VoU) survey, which is conducted about every four years. The IFRA VoU survey collects volumes of fragrance ingredients used only for the manufacturing of fragrance mixtures. 

Providing current usage volumes of ingredients specifically allows the compilation of an updated IFRA Transparency List, supports environmental risk assessments, and helps to define the scope and prioritization of materials ingredients selected to undergo safety assessment by the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM).

IFRA plans to launch the survey by the end of the first quarter of 2024.

To facilitate participation in the survey, IFRA is hosting a public webinar on 31 January 2024 from 2 – 3 pm CET (Brussels) time for all interested stakeholders.

The webinar will provide more comprehensive information on the purpose of the survey, the format for submission and important things to keep in mind to ensure the clear and meaningful reporting of the volumes.

Registration for the webinar is open: here (https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN___NrN_CJS3eUZiJtSLJ33Q)
