Australian Cosmetic Animal Test Ban Bill Passes Senate

The Australian Senate has recently passed the Government's Industrial Chemicals Bills 2017, including measures to prohibit reliance on new animal test data for chemicals introduced into Australia for use as ingredients in cosmetics. The Ministerial Rules that accompany the bill will prohibit new animal test data for all cosmetic uses of chemical ingredients introduced to Australia.There are further measures to increase compliance with the ban once implemented, as well as measures which extend beyond the cosmetics ban, and will contribute even more significantly to a reduction in animal testing.    Source: HSI Animal testing
