Delay to the implementation of national Ban on Cosmetic Testing on Animals

9 May 2017

The Department of Health (Australia) announces a major delay to the implementation of a national Ban on Cosmetic Testing on Animals.

"This measure formalises a ban on cosmetic testing on animals through a package of legislative and non-legislative initiatives. The measure represents the first step in a phased implementation from 1 July 2017.

During the 2016 election, the Government committed to introduce a ban on cosmetic testing on animals from 1 July 2017. This measure will harmonise Australian practice with international approaches on how animal test data is used, and will minimise any potential impact on industry by allowing time to move to new arrangements.

This measure will cost $2.1 million from 2017–18 to 2018–19 to be funded from existing health resources."
