China Pilot Program May Let Cosmetic Importers Bypass Animal Testing

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

While nothing is certain and visibility is low as usual, China may be on the verge of allowing importers of ordinary (non-special use) cosmetics to forgo animal testing otherwise required by the China Food and Drug Administration when they go through the Shanghai Pudong New Area. Reportedly, a pilot program enabling a simplified filing process will kick off in March to test the system under consideration.
