The ASC has a responsibility to take such steps as it sees necessary, and to advise AWERBs, on the diffusion of ‘best practice’ relating to the acquisition, breeding, accommodation, care and use of animals protected under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986, as amended.

To help fulfil this mandate, the ASC has developed a newsletter for AWERBs, called ‘the hub’. The newsletter is designed to boost communication between the ASC and AWERBs.
