Inter Parfums USA, LLC Settlement
Inter Parfums USA, LLC Settles For $3,000
In July 2022, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Inter Parfums USA, LLC (Inter Parfums), with its principal location in New York, New York, in the amount of $3,000 for the company’s violation of CARB’s air quality regulations.
CARB staff conducted an investigation that revealed Inter Parfums sold, supplied, offered for sale and/or manufactured a personal fragrance product (products with 20 percent or less) product for use in California containing concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOC) that exceeded the standards specified in California Code of Regulations, title17, section 94509(a).
The penalty in this case is $1,000 per day for three days of excess VOC emissions. The $3,000 will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California’s air quality. Inter Parfums cooperated fully with CARB to resolve this matter. To come into compliance, Inter Parfums is reformulating the product to meet future VOC requirements of the product category in California.
