ICCR Issues Report on Applicability of Animal Testing Alternatives in Regulatory Frameworks Within ICCR Regions

The International Cooperation on Cosmetics Regulation (ICCR) has issued a
report on Applicability of Animal Testing Alternatives in Regulatory
Frameworks Within ICCR Regions. The report provides an overview of
processes and mechanisms for the use of alternatives in human safety
assessments of cosmetic products and ingredients in the four ICCR

The ICCR is made up of representatives of cosmetic regulatory authorities
from the United States, Japan, the European Union, and Canada. The goal
of the ICCR framework is to maintain the highest level of global consumer
protection while minimizing barriers to international trade.

Recognizing the importance of reducing, refining, and replacing animal
use in toxicity testing, ICCR recommended in September 2007 that
international cooperation on evaluation, adoption, and use of
alternatives be strengthened.  This recommendation led to the
establishment of the International Cooperation on Alternative Test
Methods (ICATM) in 2009. NICEATM and ICCVAM participate in ICATM along
with the other ICCR participating governments and the Republic of Korea.

The report is available on the FDA website. (PDF)
