FSVO updating technical information on animal experimentation

The Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office has published on the 6 September 2018 a form for proposing updates to technical information on animal experimentation. Technical information on animal experimentation is periodically adapted to the current state of knowledge in order to incorporate improvements for experimental animals rapidly and effectively. Proposals for modification of the technical information may be submitted to the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) at any time (oberaufsicht-tv@blv.admin.ch). The form can be downloaded in German, French or English. Editorial changes and updates to the translations are made on an ongoing basis. Updates to contents are adopted annually by the Standing Committee for Animal Welfare, usually at the last meeting of the year. More info can be found on the FSVO website.
