EU animal testing

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Seventh Amendment to Cosmetics Directive reportedly will go before EU Council of Ministers for vote April 14 in Brussels without provision for marketing ban on finished cosmetics and ingredients tested on animals. In initial discussions April 30, council is said to have supported an industry-favored testing ban instead of a marketing ban. Revised text also reportedly contains four-part derogation detailing circumstances where animal testing would be allowed, including cases where no alternative test is available. Once council reaches a common position, Seventh Amendment will return to EU Parliament for second reading. Marketing and testing ban on cosmetics and ingredients tested on animals passed Parliament in April and EU's Environmental Committee in March (1"The Rose Sheet" April 9, p. 12 and 2March 26, p. 3)
