Marketers who claim they do not test on animals or they are “against animal testing” should neither have tested a product or its ingredients on animals, nor sourced ingredients from suppliers who have tested them on animals.
Marketers placing pro-vivisection or anti-vivisection ads should read Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) guidance on Animal testing and medical research.
The use of animals in experiments and testing is regulated under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (ASPA). The legislation was revised and came into force on 1 January 2013. It now reflects European Directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes. You can read more about this here.

CAP’s Advice Online entries provide guidance on interpreting the UK Code of Non-broadcast Advertising and Direct & Promotional Marketing.
