Fragrance Creators Statement on EPA’s Testimony During Today’s Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Hearing

In response to today’s Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee Hearing, titled “Oversight of Toxic Substances Control Act Amendments Implementation,” Fragrance Creators Association (Fragrance Creators), shared the following:

We are encouraged by the testimony of Dr. Michal Freedhoff, Ph.D., Assistant Administrator at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, related to the agency’s commitment towards the approval of newer, greener fragrance chemistries.

Fragrance Creators has represented the fragrance industry in advancing this effort, including providing EPA with access to current data, key industry experts, and solutions-oriented insights. Our key focus remains supporting the agency’s development of a fragrance sector-specific approach that supports a diverse array of innovative companies—small and large businesses alike—to bring more sustainable fragrances to market.

We are pleased to see Congress working closely with the EPA to oversee implementation of TSCA amendments and look forward to continuing to work with all branches of government as we advocate for regulations that support sustainable innovation, high quality jobs, and more.
