Building Standardized, Streamlined Global Product Compliance


For more than 100 years, Drom has been one of the world’s leading fragrance manufacturers with production sites spanning multiple continents. To continue growing this global business, Drom makes it a top priority to not only comply with regulations and standards but also provide customers with documentation and labeling so they can readily verify that its products are safe.

In 2011, Drom’s leadership recognized that the company needed a better way to track and analyze massive quantities of data from across their global organization to ensure compliance across countless overlapping jurisdictions – from local employee safety regulations to international product mandates including REACH and Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP). In addition, Drom also needed to continue meeting the requirements of the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) Compliance Program, which requires “eco-labeling” and bans or restricts the use of 174 chemical substances in fragrance products.
