Highest European Court To Rule On Animal-Testing Ban's Scope In 2016

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

The EU's ban on animal-tested cosmetics and ingredients could be narrowly limited to tests performed to meet the European Cosmetics Regulation's data requirements – exempting testing undertaken to comply with third-country regulations or other EU laws – if the European Court of Justice sides with industry next year. Stakeholders expect the court's advocate general to render an opinion on the matter in March 2016.
