The Code encompasses all aspects of the care and use of animals for scientific purposes where the aim is to acquire, develop or demonstrate knowledge or techniques in any area of science-for example, medicine, biology, agriculture, veterinary and other animal sciences, industry and teaching. It includes their use in research, teaching associated with an educational outcome in science, field trials, product testing, diagnosis, the production of biological products and environmental studies. Compliance with the Code is a prerequisite for receipt of NHMRC funding. The Australian Code is incorporated by reference into the New South Wales Animal Research Regulation and is central to the conduct of animal research in NSW.
