Each member state in the European Union shall have a national committee for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes. On the 3rd of February the Swedish Board of Agriculture installed a new committee for a period of two years.

The National Committee shall promote and coordinate the 3Rs work together with our stakeholders; animal welfare bodies, ethic committees on animal experiments, other authorities, researchers and associations. It shall collaborate with partners and other national committees in Europe. It is the Swedish Board of Agriculture that installs the National Committee.

The National Committe is acting as a steering group for the Swedish 3Rs Center.
