Emerging technology presents serious regulatory hurdles and even greater possibilities for the flavor and fragrance industry. The Wilson Center’s Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies has reported that products making nanotechnology claims have more than doubled, from 212 to 475, since March 2006.

One of the biggest challenges facing perfumers and flavorists today is the constant change in regulations. In fact, in order to keep track of and address the barrage of new regulations, most companies have set up their own regulatory departments. Among the most important regulatory issues in the past couple of years has been REACH (Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals).

What’s driving the biggest dynamic shift in the F&F industry? Imagine a world in which the price of gasoline is 25 cents a gallon, where Starbucks Frappuccinos are nutritious and contain no calories, and you actually like your mother-in-law. Unrealistic, perhaps, but for those involved in the organic world, and organic personal care specifically, the announcement in August 2005 that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will allow for USDA certification of personal care products was received with equal disbelief.

The 7th amendment of the European Cosmetics Directive (2003/15/EC) was published earlier this year.1 Among other things it will, when enacted into national legislation, require manufacturers of cosmetics to indicate in their ingredient statements, the names of 24 chemically defined substances (T-1) and two natural extracts when they are present at concentrations exceeding 0.001 percent in cosmetics that are intended to remain on the skin, or 0.01 percent in those that are rinsed off the skin.

How many industry professionals reading this column have ever in their lives spoken to a government regulator? My educated estimate is only a few. Now, how many readers have ever spoken to an elected official? I would guess perhaps a few more.

The effect of the Seventh Amendment to the European Cosmetic Directive and the California Safe Cosmetics Act on fragrance suppliers and customers.
