EU Court Advisor's Interpretation Would 'Destroy' Animal-Test Ban – PETA

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

In a landmark case to clarify the scope of the EU's cosmetic animal-test ban, the European Court of Justice is expected to adopt an approach potentially with favorable implications for industry. It would deny market access to cosmetics that contain ingredients tested on animals to meet third-country or other EU regulations only when that test data is "relied on" to substantiate product safety in compliance with the Cosmetics Regulation.
