Statement on interface between REACH and the Cosmetics Regulation is examined

On 21 September 2016 the European Court of Justice issued its judgment in Case C-592/14 concerning the marketing of cosmetics products that may contain ingredients that have been tested on animals. The European Commission and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) are examining whether as a result of this judgment there is a need to revise their joint statement of 27 October 2014 providing clarity on the interface between REACH and the Cosmetics Regulation.
