Description Since REACH was adopted in 2006 there have been some significant developments in alternative methods to animal testing. Several methods have now been approved that can fully replace some animal tests and there are new waiving approaches for others. There are changes to the REACH legal text as well as ECHA guidance that cover these new options. In order to help companies avoid testing on animals we have produced this simple guide to signpost you to these recent changes.
