Patterns of low level concerns
|Category:||Housing and management|
This document describes the approach that is taken in the UK when inspectors identify low-level concerns in establishments using research animals. These are not breaches of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 or licence conditions in themselves, but, taken together, they could form a pattern which could indicate that a management and/or welfare regime may have weaknesses which could pose an increased risk of non-compliance or adverse animal welfare.
Appendix A in the document describes indicators of low-level concerns. These may be useful when working to improve a culture of care at an institution.
Since the UK Act has been revised in order to transpose the EU Directive 2010/63, this document is of interest to other European countries also.
