Animal welfare NGO: Brexit could Harm Alternative Test Methods

The UK government needs to give a “clear commitment” that EU regulations aimed at phasing out animal testing will not be dismantled after Brexit, an animal welfare NGO has said.

The National Anti-Vivisection Society (Navs) said Brexit could harm the development of alternative methods and lead to duplicated animal experiments.

It warned that areas covered by EU but not UK law could be dropped. These include: controls on inspections; detailed recording on cat, dog and primate use; and a commitment to phase out the use of macaques from wild caught parents.
