Animal Care and Ethics Committee (ACEC)
The Animal Care and Ethics Committee at Southern Cross University has been established as a legal requirement for conduct of research into animals under provisions of the NSW Animal Research Act 1985.
Animal research includes the use of animals in experimental research; abnormal husbandry or dietary conditions; collection of blood, tissue or other body samples; teaching; diagnoses; product testing; feeding trials and field surveys.
People wishing to undertake any form of animal research are required to lodge an application for research approval on a specific form below. All such proposals must be considered and approved by the Animal Care and Ethics Committee and an Animal Research Authority issued to allow the work to proceed.
