Using Decision Tree Reasoning to Establish the Safety of Aroma Chemicals

This webinar will provide an update, critical to one of the five senses. Fragrance safety is a priority for the personal care industry, and the cutting edge scientific approach used by the fragrance industry has application for any exploration of chemical safety.

Safety testing at RIFM (Research Institute for Fragrance Materials) has continuously evolved in response to advances in basic applied science. Starting in 2000 a series of guidance documents established the science behind different aspects of RIFM’s safety assessment program. In 2015 a new criteria document provided a unified decision tree structure for all RIFM evaluations, incorporating read-across techniques, in silico tools, the addition of TCC (Threshold of Toxicological Concern) and clearly defined endpoints for different concerns (skin, environmental, respiratory). This webinar will review the work leading up to the new criteria and will explain in detail the current decision tree process.

On Thursday, May 3, 2018, from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT, the SCC will be live streaming a free webinar exclusively for SCC Members – Using Decision Tree Reasoning to Establish the Safety of Aroma Chemicals, will be instructed by Steve Herman; President of Diffusion LLC.

This webinar is FREE and available EXCLUSIVELY TO SCC MEMBERS. SCC members have already been sent an email on how to register. If you would like to join the webinar become/reinstate your membership today!
