Modifications to Approved Projects

All requests for minor changes to an approved project must be approved by the AEC. Modifications request will only be considered if the changes are deemed by the AEC to be minor (having no significantly different impact on the animals welfare).

Researchers are required to submit to the AEC Office by the applications closing deadline the Request for Approval of Minor Change to Protocol form

Request to modify an application may include:

  • Extension of time
  • Change to animal numbers
  • Change to animal species/strain
  • Change to protocol
  • Change in personnel

A new application is required if the modification request is deemed by the AEC to have the potential in causing a significantly different animal welfare impact to that which was originally approved by the AEC for the project.
