About Australian & New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ANZCCART)
A brief history and background
ANZCCART was established as a collaborative effort between the existing Australian Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ACCART) and New Zealand authorities, to provide a focus for consideration of the scientific, ethical and social issues associated with the use of animals in research and teaching.
ANZCCART operates on a purely advisory basis and provides guidance and information to all interested parties including Animal Ethics Committees (AEC), scientists, teachers, regulatory authorities, granting agencies, government, animal welfare organisations, the media and the general public.
These ANZCCART Fact Sheets are an excellent resource on Animal Ethics matters in research and teaching. They are recommended reading for animal researchers of all career stages, AEC members and animal handling/housing staff.
In New Zealand, ANZCCART is a committee of the Royal Society Te Apārangi. Its principal sponsors are Universities New Zealand and AgResearch Ltd but it also receives annual contributions and/ or other support from organisations including the Ministry for Primary Industries and the Royal New Zealand SPCA. The Committee promotes and supports the commitment to the principles embodied in the New Zealand legislation regulating the use of animals in research, testing and teaching in New Zealand (Animal Welfare Act 1999, Part 6) .
