PublishingPageContent

There are no record-keeping or reporting requirements for Category 1 animal use activities. Animals in this category should not be included in the animal use statistics report.

Schools must keep hard copy records relating to their use of animals for scientific purposes for 7 years for audit purposes. A comprehensive list of record, correspondence and report requirements is provided by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) at Recordkeeping for investigators and teachers.

A School based animal activity register is provided by the Queensland Schools Animal Ethics Committee (QSAEC) as a guide for schools. All applications, activity notifications, responses from QSAEC and reports should be stored with this register and be available on request by animal welfare investigators and QSAEC site inspectors.

The following reports are required:

NB: If the QSAEC does not receive all relevant reports, the approval is no longer valid. The QSAEC has the authority to investigate any unapproved use of animals for scientific purposes in Queensland schools and to ensure that the activity ceases immediately and/or remedial action is undertaken.
