Report of meeting with Animal Welfare Ethical Review Body (AWERB)

Summarises a meeting between ASC and chairs of AWERBs to discuss issues relating to the welfare of animals used in research and sharing best practice.



We met with representatives of Animal Welfare Ethical Review Bodies to discuss promoting best practice in matters relating to the care and use of animals under experimental or scientific procedures.

The first meeting of its kind, it has provided an initial forum to discuss the associated roles of the ASC and AWERBs, to ask questions and share experiences as well as identify and discuss challenges and opportunities.

The report’s findings will inform our future work programme and will be used to better engage with and support AWERBs in maintaining the highest standards in the welfare of animals used in research.
