National Animal Ethics Advisory Committee publications
NAEAC has published a range of guidelines to help animal ethics committees and those using animals for research, testing, and teaching.
Definition of manipulation
The Animal Welfare Act 1999 was amended in 2015, and the definition of "manipulation" now includes:
- killing an animal to allow research, testing, or teaching with the animal’s body or tissues
- breeding or producing an animal that may be more susceptible to, or at a greater risk of, pain or distress during its life as a result of the technique used for its breeding or production.
Some of the older NAEAC publications may not reflect this amendment.
