ABSTRACT

New legislation on the protection of animals used in research

The legislation for the protection of animals used for experimental and other scientific purposes was revised in 2010 with the publication of Directive 010/63/EU. The Spanish Government has just published the Royal Decree 53/2013 of 1 February that implements the EU Directive. The new legislation presents the novelty of adding new species to protect, a mandatory ethical review, including the definition of the degree of severity and the creation of centers to promote the development of alternatives. In addition, it promotes greater transparency by encouraging the publication of non-technical summaries of research projects.
