Abstract: This 335 pages monograph was prepared in the context of the 7th Amendment of the Cosmetics Directive for establishing the timetables for phasing out animal testing. It is the result of a work that involved 75 scientists representing 14 stakeholders. The experts have evaluated for the 11 human health effects of concern: (1) which alternative methods are currently available, (2) what is their current status, (3) the time that would be necessary to achieve validation of each test method, and the time necessary to achieve replacement of the animal test. Attached are the table of contents, the overview, and the executive summary of the monograph.
