Laws and Regulations

Fragrance ingredients and mixtures are subject to a complex web of federal and state regulations.  These authorities govern the manufacture, transport, storage, packaging and disposal of both fragrance ingredients and the products they are used in.  In addition, to these mandatory requirements, the fragrance industry has a well-established self-regulatory program that governs the safe use and manufacture of fragrance materials.  You can find more information on these industry initiatives here.
