IGP2012The 1985 International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research Involving Animals have been revised by an ad hoc committee appointed by the Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS) and the International Council for Laboratory Animal Science (ICLAS).

The revised International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research Involving Animals reflect current best practices and standards of care in laboratory animal medicine and science and provide a touchstone or framework of responsibility and oversight to ensure the appropriate use of animals.  They also may serve as a benchmark for advancing international collaboration in biomedical sciences.

It is hoped that international organizations and governmental agencies will adopt these revised International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research Involving Animals and that they will encourage use by the scientific community worldwide.
