Guiding Principles on Good Practice for Ethical Review Processes provides guidance on the requirements for UK Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Bodies (AWERBs)

This 3rd edition (2015) covers all of the AWERB's tasks including project review, retrospective review and assessment, accommodation and care of animals, support and training for staff, and developing a 'culture of care'. It encompasses all the changes in European Union and UK legislation post implementation of the EU animal welfare Directive 2010/63/EU.

There is a companion resource which provides training for lay members of Animal Welfare/Ethical Review Committees "A resource book for lay members of ethical review and similar bodies worldwide"

Guiding Principles on Good Practice for Ethical Review Processes was developed by the UK Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and the (UK) Laboratory Animal Science Association (LASA). Copyright is retained by these organisations.

This resource is of use to individuals undertaking studies using research animals and to members of animal welfare/ethical review committees. It is directly relevant to members of UK AWERBs and provides examples of good practice for those involved in ethical review of animal research elsewhere in the world.
