Synopsis

These guidelines have been developed by NHMRC on advice from its Animal Welfare Committee as introductory material to assist investigators, Animal Ethics Committees, animal technicians and the broader community when they consider research projects involving the generation and use of genetically modified and cloned animals of all species. These include laboratory, agricultural, companion animals and wildlife developed and used in research.

These guidelines provide standards for the welfare of genetically modified and cloned animals. In particular, they highlight the special ethical and welfare issues related to the creation and use of genetically modified and cloned animals.

The guidelines should be read in conjunction with the Australian code for the care and use of animals for scientific purposes 8th edition (2013) and the National Framework for the Development of Ethical Principles in Gene Technology.
