Animal User's Handbook
The University of Adelaide adheres to the Animal Welfare Act (1985), the Australian code for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes, and other relevant animal welfare Codes of Practice.
The Animal User's Handbook has been developed to assist scientific investigators and teachers to achieve the goals of the Australian Code, and to promote the humane and ethical use of animals for scientific purposes.
The Animal User's Handbook provides essential information for all who are involved in University research and teaching involving animals.
The University expects new applicants in particular to consult the Animal User's Handbook prior to submitting proposals for ethical clearance.
