Parliamentary questions
18 October 2012
E-009517-12
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Christel Schaldemose (S&D)

 Subject:  Allergenic fragrances
 Answer(s) 

In June 2012, the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) published a report stating that a number of fragrances used in perfumes are allergenic.

The Committee establishes that 82 fragrances can be classified beyond doubt as allergenic. In addition, the report raises suspicions about many other fragrances that cannot at this point in time be branded definitively as allergenic. The allergenic fragrances identified by the report are not among the 26 fragrances that must currently be declared.

In the light of the foregoing, will the Commission state if it has specific plans to make more fragrances subject to mandatory declaration, especially on the basis of the SCCS report?
