Any person or organisation using animals for research, testing and teaching purposes must follow an approved code of ethical conduct, which sets out the policies and procedures that must be followed by the organisation and its animal ethics committee.
All organisations with an approved code of ethical conduct or a notified arrangement to use another organisations code, have to submit annual statistics on the number of animals used in research, testing or teaching to the Ministry for Primary Industries. This is how we know where animals are used for research, testing and teaching purposes if all relevant criteria are met.
