Ifra and Cosmetics Europe welcome the European Parliament's position

The European Parliament has adopted its position on the proposed revision of the Regulation on Classification, Labeling and Packaging of Chemicals (CLP Regulation). The International Fragrance Association (Ifra) and Cosmetics Europe have welcomed the European Parliament's position.

The changes to CLP welcomed by Ifra and Cosmetics Europe include the classification of renewable substances of plant origin and the grouping of substances. According to the two organizations, the adoption of the Parliament's position means that a key element of the Chemical Strategy for Sustainable Development (CSS) is now being put in place.

"Ifra and Cosmetics Europe jointly welcome the adoption of the European Parliament's position. It represents a significant advance on the draft text initially proposed by the European Commission in December last year".said Aurélie Perrichet, Ifra's Regional Director for Europe.

"The changes that members of the European Parliament have made to the draft regulation - notably through specific provisions for the classification of renewable substances of plant origin - are essential to support the future of natural ingredients used in cosmetics and fragrances, said John Chave, Managing Director of Cosmetics Europe. They play an essential role in meeting the EU's ambition to stimulate organic and circular economies."

"The European Parliament has recognized that the grouping of chemical substances must be based on science and comply with the provisions of the Reach Regulation".noted Aurélie Perrichet.

"We consider it essential that the provisions and principles proposed by the European Parliament be reflected in the final text following the trilogues, emphasized John Chave. The EU Council recognized the need for carefully crafted provisions for the classification of "complex substances" (containing more than one constituent) when it adopted its position in June 2023. We are now confident that a fair and workable compromise can be found in the negotiations between the institutions."
