The IFRA 49th Amendment is bringing with it a number of changes both in terms of the resulting IFRA classes and more significantly for our customers, the underlying QRA 2 IFRA standards data. While the final set of new QRA 2 data is not expected to be finalised until at least Q2 2018, ASD is already working closely with our customers and those with direct relationships to IFRA to get ahead of the game and start building the new data structure. While the underlying calculation is pretty much the same, the unique property model of ProductVision not only allows rapid deployment of a new set of properties to handle the new IFRA classes, but it enables both the old QRA 1 data and calculation to exist alongside the new QRA 2 data and assessment. This will allow our customers to carry out side-by-side comparisons of their formulations to assess the impact of the new data.
