IFRA NA is a tremendous resource to me. I have been in the Fragrance industry for almost 40 years and appreciate the assistance and support provided by this Association more than ever. I am currently employed by a mid-sized global company which makes the value provided by IFRA NA extremely beneficial. I welcome the opportunity to participate on several committees and task forces for key issues that impact our business. Whether it is an in-person meeting, task force conference call or webinar; the education, training, and dissemination of timely information provide the avenue to remain informed and knowledgeable on critical subjects.
– Regulatory Affairs Director
Over the past few years, IFRA NA has established a new identity, a new entity and a self-sufficient corporate structure. All of this is enhancing the industry’s visibility and efficacy across our entire business model. We are light years ahead of where we were, and for this, I thank our members, our Board, our staff and prior leadership.
– Executive Vice President, Consumer Products, North America
Having worked in the fragrance industry for more than 20 years, I can easily say the resources provided by IFRA NA are invaluable, especially since our company is a small-medium sized corporation. Several months back, when Health Canada set out to reassess the labeling and safety of Reed Diffusers, it was the IFRA NA staff, who helped us navigate through Health Canada’s tricky audit process. Realizing there was a need within the membership, the IFRA NA staff convinced Health Canada to host a webinar to answer several of our questions. More recently, their knowledge and ability to stay current with the constant changes occurring within the EPA’s DfE program have solidified IFRA NA’s place as an integral part of our regulatory team and business. Our company could not be happier with the help and knowledge that IFRA NA offers, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to advise our customers accordingly.
