The Swedish Center for Animal Welfare (SCAW), is the national contact point for PARERE (Preliminary Assessment of Regulatory RElevance) in accordance with Directive 2010/63 / EU of 22 September 2010.

SCAW has identified the laboratories in Sweden that are most suitable for conducting validation studies in accordance with the directive. SCAW supports laboratories to become members of the group that carries out validation studies for the European Commission. The main task of the contact point is to advise the Commission on alternative methods to be validated on the basis of their potential to meet regulatory requirements and obtain recognition.

Swedish authorities provide SCAW with information that is forwarded to the European Union's reference laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL-ECVAM).
