Three licences are required by the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (ASPA) before testing on animals is allowed. The 3 licences needed are:

  • personal licence for each person carrying out procedures on animals
  • project licence for the programme of work
  • establishment licence for the place at which the work is carried out

The Animal e-licensing system ASPeL should now be used for all personal and project licence applications.

Before applying, please read the standard conditions for personal licences, project licences and establishment licences.
