ANZCCART Statement

Ensuring the highest standards of ethical care in the treatment and use of animals in science and research

Callaghan Innovation is a signatory to the Australian and New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ANZCCART) Openness Agreement on Animal Research and Teaching in New Zealand. 

The objective of the agreement is to inform and promote rigorous public discussion around the social, ethical and scientific use of animals in research and teaching, including the benefits, harms, and limitations.

Callaghan Innovation does not carry out research or teaching that involves the use of animals. We acknowledge, however, that many of our partners across New Zealand’s research, science and innovation ecosystem do. We therefore support the use of animals in principle in research or teaching to advance understanding and treatment of serious health conditions, including animal health conditions, where there is no practicable alternative.

As signatories to the Openness Agreement, we join with our partners to commit to and ensure the highest standards of animal welfare in all research and teaching that involves the use of animals. Such research must be undertaken only with ethical approval, as required by law, and in consideration of the Three Rs of humane experimental techniques when animals are used in research and teaching (Replacement, Reduction, and Refinement).

Our Commitment 

By signing this Agreement, we make a public pledge to meet the following five commitments, alongside the basic principles of openness which underpin them:

  1. We will be clear about why and how we use animals in research and teaching
  2. We will enhance our communications with the media and the public about our use of animals in research and teaching
  3. We will enhance our communications with tangata whenua about our use of animals in research and teaching
  4. We will be productive in providing opportunities for the public to find out about research and teaching using animals
  5. We will report on progress annually and share our experiences.
