Persons involved in laboratory animal experiments must be adequately educated and trained before they perform procedures to animals and persons designing procedures and projects must have received instructions in a scientific discipline relevant to the work being undertaken and shall have species-spesific knowledge (Diretive 2010/63/EU, Finnish legislation Law 497/2013, 8§ and Statute 564/2013, 18§). Staff carrying out procedures shall be supervised in the performance of their tasks until they have demonstrated the requisite competence.

This is due to the new legislation 1.8.2013. Renewal of legislation is based on the Directive 2010/63/EU of the European parlament and of the EU Council.

According to the Directive 2010/63/EU all persons involved in laboratory animal experiments shall be adequately educated and trained before they start their work with animals. Staff/students shall be supervised in the performance of their tasks until they have demonstrated the requisite competence. Education and training is species specific.
