RSPCA Policy D3 Toxicology research and testing

3.1RSPCA Australia is opposed to the use of animals in the testing of non-essential substances such as cosmetics, tobacco, alcohol and household products.
3.2Where formal toxicology trials involving live animals are required by law, attention should be paid to minimisation of the number of animals involved, through the appropriate use of statistics, and the minimisation of suffering in those animals. Detailed records on the signs of toxicosis should be included in any reports and publications.
