The drugs technical advisory board which operates under the ministry of health and family welfare at their 65th meeting held recently has recommended that a suitable provision may be added under the Drugs & Cosmetics Rules to prohibit the import of cosmetics tested on animals abroad.
Animal related all the offenses against the Drugs & Cosmetics Rules, 1945 are non cognizable and bailable in legal terms, being a toothless legislation, the United Nation affiliated International Organisation for Animal Protection : OIPA - Indian People for Animals demands:
1. All offenses against the Drugs & Cosmetics Rules, 1945 should be cognizable and non bailable in legal terms.
2. Cosmetics testing on animals is banned now in India, the Drugs Technical Advisory Board also recommended ban on all imported cosmetics tested on animals, we welcome this decision and demanding further immediate recall of all kinds of stock from the Indian market, which were tested on animals.
3. Production, distribution and use of Oxytocin drug needs attention, these crime should be try and decide by a fast track court system because conviction rate is very low.
4. Proof of burden imposed on the offenders instead of prosecution.
We endorsed above said demands of Naresh Kadyan, Abhishek Kadyan and Miss Sukanya Kadyan of OIPA - Indian People for Animals and authorized them to deliver our petition in person to you. We further welcome the distribution rules for oxytocin injections and support the draft rules of Drugs and Cosmetics (First Amendments) Rules, 2014.
