Animal use return forms for 2019
Animal use returns must be completed and submitted to Animal Welfare Victoria for Scientific Procedures Premises Licences (SPPL), Scientific Procedures Fieldwork Licences (SPFL), and Specified Animals Breeding Licences (SABL) held for any period in 2019, regardless of whether animals were used or not.
The annual return consists of three parts. The Licence holder is responsible for submitting a complete and accurate return. This may include a Part A and a Part C, but MUST include a Part B.
Refer to the Animal return submission guideline to assist in completion of the return. Part A, Part B and Part C documents are available below.
Complete and accurate returns are due by 31 March 2020.
An optional annual AEC self-audit document is available for AECs to work through each year as a means of monitoring their own functioning.
Copies of self-audits should be kept for inspection during auditing and may be a useful alternative to traditional annual reports to the institution for which it acts.
