International code of ethics?

Recommended Posts

Is there a world-wide established code of ethics that all biomedical workers and researchers need to keep?

 

For instance, would it be illegal for me to grab mice from my attic, breed them, and then use them for experimentation?

 

And if I did, would it be unethical if my experiment killed 100 mice in day? a week? an hour?

 

What are the ethical standards for conducting scientific experiments?

Well there's the Nuremberg Code and the 1974 Declaration of Helsinki. As for animals in particular I'm not sure if there's an international code.
