Directorate General Health & Consumers
On 13 December 2013, DG SANCO, together with the International Fragrance Association, IFRA, organises this workshop to report on the progress of the IDEA project about risk assessment methodologies, processes and criteria to identify fragrance allergens of concern. This is a result of the SCCS opinion on fragrance allergens in cosmetic products of 26-27 July 2012 who called for developing high quality safety assessment in this area.
Beside SCCS members, other experts have been invited to participate from Academia, Fragrance Industry, Commission departments and Agencies, and civil society.
This event will be the appropriate platform to monitor the progress made, exchange views, update the programme and priorities for future work to ensure consumer safety in the area of fragrance allergy whilst providing a framework for innovation and competiveness for the EU cosmetic industry.
