ESTIV Supports the Open Letter to the European Commission

The current EU Cosmetics Regulation prevents animal testing of cosmetics and cosmetic raw materials in animals, as well as it prevents introducing and marketing cosmetics tested in animals in the Europan market. EU commitment to the 3Rs and legislation introduced in this aspect is used as the gold standard around the world.

These policies have now been jeopardized by a series of recent regulatory demands made by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

Therefore, the major European animal welfare NGOs working on this issue in Europe as well as 463 cosmetics manufacturing companies have yesterday sent an open letter to the President of the EU Parliament to expressed their concerns about the situation.

The open letter intends to ensure that the EU Cosmetics Regulation’s animal testing and marketing bans are upheld. ESTIV Board is supporting this letter and demands. If your organization would like to support this Open letter, please contact Dr. Julia Baines
