The article reports on the participation of Symrise AG at the European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA). According to Symrise, the ultimate goal is to search for a regulatory-accepted method that can be used by all stakeholders to deal a specific concern for a particular material. Boris Mueller, vice president of Symrise, mentions that they have to gain a broad acceptance within the entire stakeholder procedure to have it as a way to replace the animal test.
