Imagine a syringe being forced down your throat and a massive chemical dose pumped into your stomach, or being squeezed into restraints and forced to breathe toxic vapours for hours. From drugs to pesticides and household cleaners, chemicals and products of all descriptions are still being tested in massive doses on dogs, mice, rabbits and other animals.

HSI's Science Team has been instrumental in securing the largest-ever reduction in government animal testing requirements through our public policy efforts in Europe. Now we're working to extend these life-saving precedents globally and spare countless more animals in North and South America, Asia, and beyond.

  • Chemicals

    New laws are requiring companies to submit large quantities of test data, which could mean suffering and death for tens of millions of animals.

  • Pesticides

    10,000 or more dogs, rabbits and other animals may be killed to meet government requirements for the safety testing of a single new pesticide chemical.

  • Shellfish Toxins

    Hundreds of thousands of mice each year die in agony after they are injected with extracts of shellfish meat to test for harmful toxins, yet superior non-animal tests exist.

    휴메인 소사이어티 인터내셔널, 국제적 규제조화와 동물실험 최소화 위해 국내 화평법 화학물질 시험 고시 개정 제안

    휴메인 소사이어티 인터내셔널 (이하 HSI)은 화학물질 등록 및 평가 등에 관한 법률 (이하 화평법)의 시험 고시 개정 제안서를 환경부와 국립환경과학원 관계당국에 전달했다. 이 제안서는 OECD (경제협력개발기구) 34개 회원국에서 공인한 최신의 비동물시험방법을 국내에서도 인정함으로써 화학물질 관련 규정에 있어 국제적 규제조화와 동물실험 최소화를 이루고 국내시험규정의 현대화를 이루기 위한 취지로 이루어졌다. 유럽연합 등 해외 화학규정에서는 비동물시험방법을 이미 채택했거나, 채택하는 과정에 있다.

    アメリカの環境保護庁は、省庁が義務付ける農薬の試験において、眼刺激や皮膚刺激などの「急性」毒性や「致死量」に関する試験で、動物の使用を大幅に削減する計画を公表した。この新計画は、より効率的で、予測性が高く、費用対効果が良く、かつ人道的な新たな技術への移行の一環であり、環境保護庁と全米人道協会(The Humane Society of the United States, HSUS)、ヒューメイン・ソサイエティー・インターナショナル(Humane Society International, HSI)や、その他の関係者との何年間にも及ぶ科学的な対話の後公表された。
