Safer Medicines Trust responds to Home Office consultation on the revision of EU Directive 86/609

The European Commission is updating the 20-year old Directive 86/609 regulating animal experiments. The UK Home Office has just conducted a public consultation on the Commission’s proposal. Most of the questions were not relevant for us, as a patient safety organisation, to answer. However, the use of animals as models of human disease and also for testing the safety of medicines has a major impact on patient safety and thus the directive is of concern to us.
