Animal Use Policy

Lorillard Policy on Animal Use and Testing

It is the policy of Lorillard, Inc. not to conduct or commission research involving animals and will in good faith otherwise not use animals unless necessary to meet regulatory requirements. In order to eliminate animal testing, Lorillard R&D will use scientifically accepted or validated alternative test methods and technologies that avoid the use of live animals. Such methods and tests may include in vitro cell culture tests, advanced chemistry tests and computer modeling programs. When animal testing is conducted, it is our policy to follow well established guidelines on the humane care and use of animals such as the U.S. Animal Welfare Act (7 USC 2131) and the National Research Council Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals.
