This form is to be completed and returned via email to [email protected] or posted to the Secretary, Animal Research Ethics
Committee, c/- Office of Research and Development.
Please use this form to record the number of animals used in the 12 month reporting period only (01 January – 31 December).
Do not report on animals that have been used before or after the reporting period.
A report is required for all projects that were current during the reporting period, even if no animals were used during the reporting
period.

Animals Held
Animals maintained specifically for use in other projects and not yet used in the reporting year. That is, these
animals are acquired and held solely for the purpose of use in other projects. These animals may not have a
project number and this column may be left blank.
Examples

Non-breeding colony of diabetic rats held for research in other projects.

Animals allocated to a project with an AEC number but not yet used.

Animals that had not been allocated by 31 Dec.
This section does not include animals which are not held specifically for scientific use, (e.g. Stock held on
properties for normal farming purposes, from which animals may be drawn. These animals should only be
counted in the project when they are used for scientific purposes).
2A
Stock breeding (Genetically modified)
Breeding projects to produce genetically modified animals only. Include the animals used to produce progeny
and any breeders or progeny culled in the process, but NOT the final progeny themselves (as these will be
counted under the project in which they are used).
2B
Stock Breeding (not genetically modified)
Breeding projects to produce animals that have not undergone any genetic modification at any stage, even
though the line may have been previously genetically modified at a different stage. Include the animals used
to produce progeny and any breeders or progeny culled in the process, but NOT the final progeny
themselves (as these will be counted under the project in which they are used). Please see the breeding
project diagram on page 18 as an example)

Education
Non-invasive projects carried out to achieve educational objectives. The purpose of the project is not to acquire
new knowledge, rather to pass on established knowledge to others. This would include interactive or
demonstration classes in methods of animal husbandry, management, examination and treatment.
Examples

Animals used by veterinary schools to teach examination procedures such as pregnancy diagnosis.

Sheep used in shearing demonstration classes for students; dogs used to teach animal care to TAFE
students.

Research: human or animal biology
Research projects which aim to increase the basic understanding of the structure, function and behaviour of
animals, including humans, and processes involved in physiology, biochemistry and pathology.
☐
5
Research: human or animal health and welfare
Research projects which aim to produce improvements in the health and welfare of animals, including
humans.

Description:
Research: animal management or production
Research projects which aim to produce improvements in domestic or captive animal management or
production.
Research: environmental study
Research projects which aim to increase the understanding of animals’ environment or their role in it. These
will include studies to determine population levels and diversity and may involve techniques such as
observation, radio tracking or capture and release.
EXAMPLE

Pre-logging or pre-development fauna surveys.
Product testing
Pre-registration efficacy or toxicity testing of drugs and vaccines.
