No Longer Coming Soon in 2021: Fragrance and Flavor Reporting

Since the last Newsletter was sent, SB-574 (the Cosmetic Fragrance and Flavor Right to Know Act of 2019) has stalled out in the California legislature.
SB-574, the Cosmetic Fragrance and Flavor Ingredient Right to Know Act of 2019 passed the California Assembly’s Committee on Environmental Safety and Toxic materials on July 2, but failed to clear the Appropriations Committee by an August 30 deadline. Supporters of the bill hope to have the bill brought back next year for another attempt. As a reminder on the background of SB-574, if signed into law, the bill would require manufacturers to report (via a designated website) fragrance and flavor ingredients used in cosmetics in California to the California Department of Public Health if those ingredients appear on any of 22 designated lists. Fragrance allergens from Annex III of the EU Cosmetic Regulation would also have to be reported. CPDH will need to notify companies of additions or deletions from any list, but companies must request this notification. There would be a 6 month compliance window for companies to update their reporting as a result of a change to the lists.
