Animal testing: a legal perspective
Jen Hochmuth

Apart from the indisputable ethical questions that animal experiments raise, the scientific relevance of animal experiments is questionable time and again. In addition, many animal experiments are also a violation of the European Directive on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes. EU law explicitly states that the use of animals for scientific or educational purposes should therefore only be considered where a non-animal alternative is unavailable and that use of animals for scientific procedures in other areas under the competence of the Union should be prohibited. The focus of this presentation is to illustrate case studies of animal experiments breaching EU law and discuss effective strategies to file legal complaints.
