A collection of documents written by the RSPCA designed for lay members of Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Bodies (AWERBs) in the UK and similar committees elsewhere.

A collection of documents written by the RSPCA designed for lay members of Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Bodies (AWERBs) in the UK and similar committees elsewhere.

These documents can be accessed from the RSPCA website.
The RSPCA has also published guidance entitled Delivering Effective Ethical Review: The AWERB as a 'forum for discussion' (hard copies may be ordered by email). This guidance includes some material from the RSPCA/LASA Guiding Principles on Good Practice for AWERBs and the RSPCA Lay Members' Resource Book, complementing both of these documents.
The RSPCA and LASA have also produced guidance on developing induction materials for AWERB members. This guidance is available online and sets out some key generic resources and a self-assessment checklist for AWERB members, to help establishments develop their own induction packs. It is intended to complement in-house training and provide members with the knowledge and motivation to be effective participants in the AWERB, whether they are animal technologists, scientists, lay or independent members, Named Persons or AWERB chairs.
