Concordat on Openness on Animal Research
On June 3rd, 2014, Wickham Laboratories signed the Concordat on Openness on Animal Research. We agreed to work to fulfil the following four Commitments, initiating projects and strategies that are relevant and appropriate to our organisation, and to be more open about the use of laboratory animals in research:
Commitment 1 – We will be clear about when, how and why we use animals in research.
Commitment 2 – We will enhance our communications with the media and the public about our research using animals.
Commitment 3 – We will be proactive in providing opportunities for the public to find out about research using animals.
Commitment 4 – We will report on progress annually and share our experiences.
