Registration of Cosmetics Without Animal Tests.
On 05.02.2018, the NIFDC (National Institutes for Food and Drug Control) – a unit under the NMPA (China Food and Drug Administration) – published a draft on two alternatives to animal testing: One for skin and one for eye irritation.
The draft was open for public comment until 15.02.2018 and clearly indicates a major step towards the improvement of China’s technical cosmetics regulations and the replacement of animal testing in the future. Cisema will follow this development closely and will inform you as soon as the NMPA notice regarding the finalization of the two alternative methods is published.
