Harmonisation of the Care and Use of Wild and Domestic Mammals and Birds in Field Research (Harmonisation of the Care and Use of Wild and Domestic Mammals and Birds in Field Research)
Owner/Developer: Norwegian National Platform for Alternatives (NORECOPA)
26 October 2017
Laboratory Animals Ltd.
This international consensus meeting was a follow-up of Norecopa's consensus meeting in 2008. There were 32 participants from 4 countries (32 from Norway, 4 from Sweden, 3 from the UK and I from the Netherlands). We are very grateful to Laboratory Animals Ltd. for sponsorship of the meeting.
Much has happened since 2008: not least, implementation of EU's Directive 2010/63 and new Norwegian legislation. Both of these contain new concepts and relatively few specific statements about field research. There are many unanswered questions which need to be discussed. One of these concerns the dividing line between capture, marking and sample collection of animals for management purposes, and for research. Another aim of the meeting was to close the gap between researchers working in the field and those working with laboratory animals, and to present the PREPARE guidelines for planning research.
