Judicial Review of the European Marketing Ban on Cosmetic Products Containing Ingredients Tested on Animals Underway
"A European Court of Justice (ECJ) judicial review to interpret the marketing ban on cosmetic products, containing ingredients tested on animals under the EU cosmetics Regulation, is progressing, as relevant parties have submitted their statements on the case.
The European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients (EFfCI) brought the case before the High Court in London, UK, in 2013, asking it to clarify whether the cosmetics industry is legally allowed to use in vivo data, generated for purposes that do not fall under the EU cosmetics Regulation. After the last hearing before the High Court, on 24 November, the case was referred to the ECJ (CW 16 December 2014).
The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (Buav) and the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) have been accepted as case interveners."
