IIVS’ work with the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) and its subsidiary body, the National Institute for Food and Drug Control (NIFDC) has paid off with the recent approval of the T3 Neutral Red Uptake Phototoxicity Test, the first  non-animal test method that can be used for safety tests in cosmetics sold in China. This article references IIVS’s work with the CFDA and NIFDC over the last several years to provide training and education around non-animal methods for safety assessments in conjunction with China’s ongoing efforts to modernize their testing requirements and reduce their reliance on animals.
