The Australian Government has committed to a ban on testing cosmetics on animals, and is investigating changes to existing requirements as part of developing options for implementation. This involves a process of broad consultation and policy design.
Information about the consultation process can be found on the Department of Health website: http://www.health.gov.au/inter...
The package contains a paper which sets out background and contextual information and provides an overview of the regulation of cosmetics in Australia. The background paper does not provide a comprehensive analysis of the issue or put forward policy options.
Australia welcomes views and contributions from trading partners in the consultation process.
