You are welcome to use the AWB self-assessment form to evaluate whether your animal research project outside of the EU follows the same principles as in Swedish legislation. If you identify differences which may have a negative effect on animal welfare we advise you to contact us.

KI policy

According to KI policy the conditions for animal welfare must be comparable to the principles in Swedish legislation that is, an animal ethics permit, a certain level of animal welfare and the 3R (Replace, Refine, Reduce).
