Application of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act
This unit will broaden and deepen knowledge beyond that in UK “l” and EU 1 modules. It will develop the reflective and analytical skills allowing learners to contribute fully to the implementation of the Act with regards to the 3R’s, effective animal welfare and good science. This module aims to provide an understanding of ASPA and the legal responsibilities of the personnel involved. It will cover the responsibilities of those holding “named” positions and those licensed under ASPA to carry out procedures on animals, as well as those not carrying out procedures but taking care of animals or killing animals. It should be considered alongside other relevant animal legislation.
