to the Commission
Rule 130
Pascal Arimont (PPE)

 Subject:  Animal testing of household products
 Answer in writing 

Following the entry into force of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 and the expiry of the transitional periods, an EU-wide ban on animal testing of cosmetics and substances contained in them has been in force since March 2013. In its communication of 11 March 2013, however, the Commission pointed out that most of the substances contained in cosmetics are also used in other products — such as household products, including detergents — and that animal testing may be required for these products, in some cases under the terms of legal provisions which are not part of EC law on cosmetics, for example the REACH Regulation.

Meanwhile, in October 2015 a ban on the marketing of household products tested on animals will come into force in the United Kingdom. It is thus perfectly possible to extend the ban on animal testing to cover household products.

Is the Commission now prepared to introduce a blanket ban on the animal testing of household products? What precise form would the relevant legislative measures take?
