GA Passports

GA Passports: The key to consistent animal care provides recommendations on information to provide when transferring genetically altered animals between establishments so that staff caring for these animals can improve their welfare, minimise the potential for pain, suffering or distress and ensure that each animal (or batch of animals) receives a consistent standard of care throughout their lifetime.

This report was prepared by the UK Royal Society for the Protection of Animals (RSPCA) Genetically Altered Passport Working Group (GAPWG) comprising a range of practitioners in the GA animal field. It builds on the “mouse passport” records proposed by Wells et al. (2006). Copyright of GA passports is retained by the RSPCA.

GA passports will be of use to individuals involved in the care, husbandry, use, breeding or supply of genetically altered animals.
