GUIDELINES FOR RESEARCHERS:
All animals have an intrinsic value, i.e. their welfare and wellbeing should be protected not because they have a religious, social, financial or any other status, but because they are animals.
Following the theory of moderate biocentrism animals deserve protection of their welfare and wellbeing according to their position with the scala naturae, i.e. higher developed animals need stronger protection than lower developed animals.
The use of animals in experimental research should be avoided, where ever it is possible (Replacement).
If animal research is necessary, as less animals as possible should be used (Reduction).
Using animals for necessary experimental research should only be performed under high quality standards i.e. optimal methods, especially avoiding unnecessary pain (Refinement).
For animal experiments with the expectation of severe suffering or pain humane endpoints need to be defined in advance.
Persons using animals in experimental research take over the responsibility for the welfare and wellbeing of their animals (Responsibility).
Only persons with adequate training are allowed to perform or participate animal experiments.
Animal experiments must be ethically justified by the responsible researcher as well as by an ethical review committee respecting the regional legislation, religion and moral.
Results of animal experiments need to be published whenever possible in order to avoid unnecessary further experiments in other countries
