The Toxicology Working Group brings together the toxicological expertise of the member companies.

It reviews and contributes to the discussions on EU and non-EU legislation relevant to the safety assessment of ingredients.

It also provides guidance to its members such as on the guidelines to Annex I of the Cosmetics Regulation.

Working in close cooperation with ECVAM (the European Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods), the Working Group contributes to the development and validation of alternative methods to animal testing.

The Working Group also supports EFfCI in discussions with international authorities, such as those in China, on the safety evaluation of cosmetic raw materials.
