New Animal-Research Regulations for the European Union
9 September 2010 11:16 am
European scientists will use fewer animals in research when newly approved regulations come into effect across the European Union. The European Parliament yesterday approved the directive, which member countries have to implement by September 2012. The final rules, which have been under discussion for nearly a decade, are not as strict as some scientists had feared. Research on great apes is prohibited, but experiments on macaques and other monkeys are allowed.
