The National Centre for the 3Rs (NC3Rs) is the UKs leading independent scientific based organisation dedicated to replacing, refining and reducing the use of animals in scientific research and testing.

The NC3Rs primarily exists to support the research community to use the latest science and technology to replace animal studies. This Government will continue to work with the NC3Rs on how best to utilise its expert advice on the delivery of the 3Rs as part of the regulatory process.
