Persons conducting animal experiments must provide regular reports about the number of laboratory animals used along with information about the experiments completed.
In accordance with Article 36 of the Animal Welfare Act (AniWA), the FSVO publishes annual statistics covering all animal experiments. The statistics on animal experiments contain the required data to enable the assessment of the application of animal welfare legislation.
Article 20a of the AniWA requires the FSVO to publish information about the animal experiments completed. The researchers report the title, field of study, purpose of the experiment, number of animals used per species and severity of the constraint suffered by the animals involved. This information is published continuously by the FSVO.
Reports and announcements from researchers on the number of laboratory animals used and the experiments completed are processed electronically in animex-ch.
