Industry May Lean On Outside Animal Data If Humane Cosmetics Act Passes

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

A ban on cosmetic animal testing in the U.S. would challenge companies' ability to ensure product safety as required by the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, particularly with respect to safety-assessment components that can't be readily or confidently addressed by alternative methods. Companies facing liability risks may choose to borrow safety data for their ingredients derived via animal testing in other sectors to meet non-cosmetic regulatory requirements, TSG Senior Regulatory Consultant Bob Stewart suggests.
