In order to enable the breeder, supplier and user of experimental animals to ensure the holding and care of appropriate experimental animals, as well as to carry out pilot projects and to obtain an authorisation for the use of an animal in the procedure, this should mean the responsible person for the implementation of those activities. This person must have appropriate education and qualifications and be authorised by the Food and Veterinary Service.

  2. Evaluation of the application
    The Service shall take one of the following decisions within five working days of receipt and evaluation of the submission and the documents attached thereto:

    - to issue an authorisation to the responsible person;
