• Animal Experiments Committee (DEC)
  • The Animal Experiments Committee (Dier Experimenten Commissie – DEC) judges ethical aspects of projects in which animals are involved. Research projects or educational projects involving laboratory animals can only be executed if they are approved by an Animal Experiments Committee (DEC). The DEC considers the application and pays careful attention to the effects of the intervention on the animal, its discomfort, and weighs this against the social and scientific benefit to humans or animals. The researcher is required to keep the effects of the intervention to a minimum, based on the three Rs (Refinement, Replacement, Reduction).
    The Committee consists of 10 members, of which 4 members, including the Chair, are not employed by Maastricht University.
