Subject-matter: Proposing an European legislative framework aimed at phasing out animal experiments
Main objectives: Considering clear ethical objections to animal experiments and solid scientific principles that invalidate the “animal model” for predicting human response, we urge the European Commission to abrogate directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes and to present a new proposal that does away with animal experimentation and instead makes compulsory the use - in biomedical and toxicological research - of data directly relevant for the human species
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers: Article 13 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU)
