IFRA UK, originally founded in the 1940s to ensure the safe enjoyment of fragrance, also now represents the industry to policymakers, the media, and the public, whilst keeping safety as its primary focus. IFRA UK provides industry representation to stakeholders and connects members to essential information, programmes, and services that provide an advantage in the marketplace.

We deliver information and support for our members, whilst providing a collaborative platform from which our advocacy policy is developed. IFRA UK brings together the best technical and regulatory expertise available throughout the industry via its Technical Advisory Group which meets four times a year.

Information days are open to all members providing updates on key legislative changes and technical issues. An elected Executive Committee deals with strategy, policy matters, finance and oversees the work of the Technical Advisory Group and ad hoc working groups.

IFRA UK organises the annual Fragrance Forum which looks at a diverse range of topics across the breadth of olfaction and fragrance. It is a highlight of the fragrance industry calendar. More about this can be found on our events page
