Completing your application
The below are links to assist you and provide information in completing your animal ethics application.
Approval must be obtained from the Animal Care and Ethics Committee before animals are used for research and teaching purposes. Application for approval for the use of animals is made to the ACEC using the prescribed application forms.
This page assists you in the following:
- Which form to use
- Submission instructions
- Meeting dates and application submission deadlines
This link provides information on the following:
- Application for NEW approval, or RENEWAL of approval
- Application for a MINOR amendment to a project with CURRENT approval

Omission of essential information is a common cause of delays in the processing of an application. Attachments have been developed for specific procedures and situations, to ensure that your application includes the required information pertaining to that procedure or situation.
Rather than use an attachment, you may choose to develop a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for a particular procedure or technique. An SOP can be used to replace an attachment or a number of attachments to the application form.
