Reporting animal welfare concerns
Animal welfare concerns may arise when the humane and ethical treatment of animals is not upheld. This may occur in animal holding rooms, production rooms the laboratory or in the field, and may constitute a breach of the Australian Code of Practice for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes (NHMRC, 2013).
Anyone concerned about the welfare of animals at the ANU should report their concerns to the ANU Animal Experimentation Ethics Committee (AEEC), via the Research Ethics Office: email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 612 53427. Membership of the committee includes animal welfare and community representatives.
Urgent matters should be referred to the veterinarian on-call 24/7 on 6125 1130.
Please be assured that concerns raised are taken seriously and will be treated confidentially and sympathetically.
