Use of Non-human Primates


EASAC believes there is a need for carefully selected research questions to be answered with the use of non-human primates, but believes this should always be subject to a rigorous assessment of the welfare of the animals, the potential scientific and medical benefits and the availability of other approaches in each case.

EASAC urges EU Institutions and Member States to recognise the case for the use of non-human primates in research, while ensuring their use is carefully regulated.
