- "The International Council of IVU sugests to member societies that they ask manufacturers who use gelatine to encase pills etc. to cease the practice and use such other medium as will not offend vegetarians, vegans and members of various religious groups."
- "The International Council asks member societies to be restrained in their presentation of the case for this action and that they should do nothing that might bring IVU or the International Council into disrepute. Member societies are asked to keep the International Council informed of any approaches they might make and the reaction to the approaches."
