Rules, Regulations, Guidelines, and Directives

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskning

This handbook discusses behavioral management of nonhuman primates (NHPs) within the existing framework of the many regulations and guidelines that provide the present day’s concept of minimum acceptable standards for the housing and care of NHPs. The word “minimum” is important as is the realization that regulations and guidelines have evolved markedly during the past 30 years with respect to, for example, minimum space requirements, social housing, and husbandry. Hopefully, guidelines will continue to evolve and books like this one will help pave the way toward further refinement of guidelines for the care and use of NHPs in biomedical research. This is an evolutionary process, which is never completed, as captive care techniques will continue to be refined and improved, leading to future modifications of current regulations and guidelines.
