Three licences are required by the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (ASPA) before testing on animals is allowed. The 3 licences needed are:
- personal licence for each person carrying out procedures on animals
- project licence for the programme of work
- establishment licence for the place at which the work is carried out
The Animals Scientific e-Licensing (ASPeL) system should now be used for all personal and project licence applications.
Before applying, please read the standard conditions for personal licences, project licences and establishment licences.
