RETROSPECTIVE ANALYSIS OF PROJECTS

At the end of the animal experiment, a retrospective analysis must be submitted to the ECD. This includes an overview of the experiments carried out, the animals used for this (number, species, sex, etc.), insights for alternatives resulting from the experiments carried out, and also a welfare evaluation of the animal experiment in which a comparison is made between the estimated inconvenience before the test and the real distress experienced by the animals during the test (with explanation of a possible discrepancy).

All data relating to an animal test or research proposal are kept for up to three years after the end of the animal test to which the data relate.
