The agenda includes a one day pre-conference workshop on October 14th​, that will be split into a morning session looking at the impact of 56 newly identified fragrance allergy, while the afternoon session will look at ways to simplify the management of documentation and processes for compliance.

Day 1 of the conference programme will be October 15th​, and the session will be opened by Andrew, who will also be overseeing the proceedings by introducing all the speakers and moderating a panel discussion on the first day and a roundtable on the second day.
