We expect to publish regulations to transpose the provisions of European Directive 2010/63/EU in May 2012.

During the process of transposing the directive we are regularly engaging with the bioscience sector, animal welfare and protection groups, funding bodies, training accreditors and practitioners under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986, and will continue to do so until the transposition process is completed.
