This Code of Practice (“CoP”) is issued under section 21 of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986

Article 22 of the Directive 2010/63/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (22 September 2010) on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes requires that Member States ensure that “all establishments of a breeder, supplier or user have installations and equipment suited to the species of animals housed and, where procedures are carried out, to the performance of the procedures.”

White Antibodies embrace all Directives and are currently testing a bespoke design of rabbit cage that offers more space and comfort with a raised platform to meet the Directive that comes into force on 1st January 2017.
