List of Laboratory Animal Legislation in United Kingdom

List of Laboratory Animal Law: Legal Control of the Use of Animals in Research

Some early Acts (for example, the Cruelty to Animals Act 1876) are relevant to laboratory animal law but are no longer applicable, having been repealed. Some legislation dealing with animals, such as the Performing Animal (Regulation) Act 1925, are hardly relevant to the law on laboratory animals. The Breeding and Sale of Dogs (Welfare) Act 1999 for example, is concerned with the pet trade so does not apply to Designated Establishments.
