EURL ECVAM Releases Progress Report on Directives for Cosmetic Products

EURL ECVAM has now released the progress report on the development, validation and regulatory acceptance of alternative methods prepared in the framework of Directive 76/768/EEC and Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 on cosmetic products.

The report summarises advances made since publication of the major review conducted in 2010 and describes the availability of methods with the potential to address information requirements (toxicological properties) of particular relevance to the safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients.

As described in a recent Commission Communication, on the 11th March 2013 a complete marketing ban came into force concerning cosmetics products which contain ingredients tested on animals after that deadline.

You can find the report at link.
