California Fragrance & Flavor Reporting
Friday, September 13, 2019

Section: Articles


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.  This bill was passed in the state Senate in late May and continues to progress through the Assembly.  When signed into law, the bill will 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.

Effective date: January 1, 2021
