The Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986
Lancet. 1986 Jul 5; 2(8497): 32-33.
Hollands reviews the activities of the Committee for the Reform of Animal Experimentation (CRAE) in securing passage of Britain's 1986 Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act. Founded in 1978 to seek reform of the law governing animal experimentation, CRAE allied itself with the British Veterinary Association and the Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (FRAME) to influence government policy. Accepting that the abolishment of all animal research was an unrealistic goal, CRAE set four objectives for new legislation: the restriction of pain, a substantial decrease in the number of experimental animals used, the development and use of alternative research methods, and public accountability. Hollands asserts that these goals have been achieved in the 1986 Act, with its strong provisions for animal research oversight by the Home Secretary. He also notes increased interest by scientific groups in monitoring animal experimentation. (KIE abstract)
