The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has added a page to its website titled "Recommended Procedures Regarding the CPSC's Policy on Animal Testing." The page summarizes the CPSC policy on animal testing and their suggestions for the use of existing information and scientifically validated alternatives to animal testing in hazard assessment. The page also lists acceptable alternative methods for acute toxicity testing, ocular irritation testing, dermal irritation testing, and skin sensitization testing, and provides links to CPSC votes and approvals regarding animal testing policy. Please contact us to discuss strategies for implementing the CPSC's recommendations within your in vitro testing program. Click on the link above to view the page on the CPSC website.
