Animal Testing Ban in 2017 Federal Budget

The Government Is Keeping Its Promise on Animal Testing

Following the success of the #BeCrueltyFree campaign which saw the government pledging to end animal testing by July 2017, the banning has been included in the 2017 Federal Budget. Over two years, $2.1 million will be spent to keep the promise and ban cosmetic testing on animals in Australia from the end of 2018. The government will ban the use of new data on cosmetic ingredients that come from animal tests from next year, and develop a voluntary industry code of practice to standardise claims of labels.
