    PETA Science Consortium International e.V.   (PSCI)

    EU Transparency Register

    484576440734-93 First registered on 18 Dec 2020

    Goals / Remit

    PSCI was established in Germany (Registration Number VR 724927) as a result of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, in order to carry forward in the EU the work of the UK-based PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. (“PISC”, registered in England and Wales as company number 08312511 and transparency register identification number 83485908659-40). The goals, activities, and structure are essentially the same as those of PISC, as set forth herein. PSCI represents the interests of its members and their individual supporters. PSCI co-ordinates its own and its members' scientific and regulatory expertise to promote reliable and relevant strategies to reduce and replace the use of animals in experiments. Building on the previous work of PISC at the EU level, PSCI provides technical support to companies and researchers seeking to replace, reduce, or refine the use of animal tests, and advises its members with regard to providing financial support to companies to achieve this goal.

    Other activities

    In December 2020 PSCI was established in Germany, Registration Number VR 724927, following the UK’s exit from the EU in order to carry on the role of The PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. (PISC), a UK company. PISC was registered as a company in November 2012 and prior to that, PISC functioned as an unincorporated association.

    PSCI will step in to take over the previous work of PISC at the EU level with a focus on the following EU initiatives:

    1) Registration, Evaluation, and Authorisation of Chemical Substances (REACH) Regulation

    PISC and its members have been actively addressing the animal testing implications of REACH since it was first announced and PSCI will continue these activities through:

    • Extensive dialogue with ECHA, the European Commission and the Competent Authorities for REACH and CLP (CARACAL)
    • Participation in ECHA stakeholder events
    • Attendance at Member States Committee meetings
    • Engagement with stakeholders, including industry bodies, EU Directive 2010/63/EU and REACH competent authorities.
    • Promoting the use of QSAR, read-across and other non-animal test methods to meet REACH data requirements
    • Intervening in ECHA Board of Appeal cases
    • Engagement with members of the European Parliament, either individually or through meetings of the Parliament’s Intergroup on the Welfare and Conservation of Animals.

    2) EURL ECVAM Stakeholder Forum (ESTAF)

    PSCI will participate in the ESTAF and contribute to the validation process of in vitro methods through commenting on EURL ECVAM recommendations and strategies.

    3) Harmonisation Efforts

    Gains in one country or region are better served by assurances that those gains are meaningful elsewhere, including in the EU. PSCI compiles and publishes a list of validated alternative methods and coordinates efforts between countries to maximise harmonisation opportunities.

    4) Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)

    PSCI will provide extensive technical expertise to the OECD through the International Council on Animal Protection in OECD Programmes (ICAPO). This ensures that the OECD's proposed international test standards for both human health and ecological safety use non-animal methods wherever possible and implement 3R approaches. This work will include:

    • Participation in expert groups
    • Submitting detailed scientific comments on test guidelines, guidance documents, validation reports and detailed review papers
    • Attending the Working Group of the National Coordinators of the Test Guidelines Programme, which oversees the work of the OECD test guidelines programme.

    5) Directive 2010/63/EU on the Protection of Animals Used for Scientific Purposes

    In coordination with it members, PSCI will respond to consultations regarding to the use of animals in scientific procedures under Directive 2010/63/EU, such as those held by European Commission and the Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks.
    Furthermore, PSCI will observe the Competent Authorities' Expert Group on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes.

    6) Regulation No 528/2012 concerning the making available on the market and use of biocidal products (BPR)

    PSCI will work to ensure that tests on animals for the purposes of this regulation are minimised wherever possible through
    • Dialogue with ECHA and the European Commission
    • Participation in ECHA stakeholder events
    • Promoting the use of QSAR, read-across and other non-animal test methods to meet BPR data requirements
    • Intervening in ECHA Board of Appeal cases

    7) Regulations 283/2013 and 284/2013 setting out the data requirements for plant protection products and their active substances, in accordance with Regulation 1107/2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market

    PSCI will work to ensure that tests on animals for these regulations is minimised using similar approaches to those described for REACH and the BPR.
