Norwegian legislation on animal experimentation
Norwegian legislation concerning the use of animals in research has been amended to implement the requirements contained in EUs Directive 2010/63 on the use of animals for scientific purposes. Norway fully implemented the Directive on 1 August 2016 via the European Economic Area Agreement (EØS-avtalen). This includes the establishment of a National Committee for the Protection of Animals used for Scientific Purposes.
On the Norwegian version of this page, the use of genetically altered animals and micro-organisms is also discussed.
Most of Norway's legislation is only available in Norwegian, but Norway's Animal Welfare Act is available in English.
