Parliamentary questions

E-005016/2012
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
David Martin (S&D)

 Subject: Postponement of March 2013 ban on the marketing of animal-tested cosmetics
 Answer(s) 

It has come to my attention that the marketing ban on animal-tested cosmetics scheduled for March 2013 may be postponed. Given that the 7th Amendment to the directive in 2003 made it clear that 10 years was the ‘maximum deadline’ for the implementation of this ban, can the Commission please inform me if this is the case?

Can the Commission also inform me if there is likely to be a derogation regarding the remaining conditions and if this would continue to allow testing on animals for the REACH testing programme?
