The implementation of severity classification of procedures, both prospectively and retrospectively, is on one hand a big challenge in animal studies in that it entails legal and ethical implications. On the other hand, it is an important and useful tool for properly evaluating research projects with regards to their prospective severity classification, to implement the least constraining procedures and to keep the level of severity of procedures the lowest possible. It also helps to improve communication with the public providing a more detailed picture of animal experimentation by differentiating procedures according to retrospective/actual severity.

This meeting will attract all four stakeholders in field research: regulators, scientists, industry and animal welfarists. Implementation of the EU Directive 2010/63 and new legislation in many countries poses challenges for those carrying out field research. There are many unanswered questions which
need to be discussed. One of these concerns the dividing line between capture, marking and
sample collection of animals for management purposes, and for research.
