Australia’s Department of Health Seeks to Ban Cosmetic Testing on Animals

During the 2016 Federal Election campaign, the Australian Government committed to introduce a ban on animal testing of cosmetic products. Following a series of stakeholder workshops, the Department released an online survey and background paper, which sought to provide an open opportunity for the general public and stakeholders to continue to engage in the consultation process. This survey closed on 16 December 2016. The second stage of face to face stakeholder workshops will commence in early March in Melbourne and Sydney.   Source: Cosmetics on animals
