Fragrance Creators Applauds the Senate's Passage of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act

Fragrance Creators Association President & CEO Farah K. Ahmed issued the following statement after the Senate's passage of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act, S. 3580: 

"Fragrance Creators applauds the Senate's passage of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act. As an original endorser of the legislation, along with our allied trades, we are pleased to play an active role in advancing this important legislation designed to address shipping supply chain challenges that ultimately impact consumers in the form of increased prices and empty shelves. 

We applauded the House's passage of their version of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act last December and look forward to the chambers quickly moving to conference to reconcile the differences in the two versions. 

Fragrance is a critical input into a myriad of finished products, including personal care, cleaning and disinfecting, and delay in fragrance supply has a ripple effect down the value chain. This is why, as responsible industry stewards, our members remain committed to advancing legislation that alleviates supply chain disruptions."
