Meeting Dates

Meeting dates and closing dates for submission for 2020

All submissions to the AEC (including new applications, requests for amendment/addition of new personnel, progress and final reports, etc.) must be received a minimum of 2 and a half weeks prior to the meeting (i.e. on or before the Closing Dates for submissions). This is essential to allow sufficient time for processing and thorough review of submissions by the AEC prior to meetings. It also provides opportunity for applicants to clarify queries the Committee may have regarding their submission.

**An inspection of animal facilities will be held on the day of the AEC meeting on the dates highlighted above (unless otherwise stated). It is a requirement under the NHMRC - Australian Code of Practice for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes 8th Edition 2013 that inspections of facilities used for animal research, housing and teaching are carried out on a regular basis (See The Code). Under the Macquarie University AEC Terms of Reference the AEC will carry out facility inspections twice per year, if possible.

Please do not hesitate to contact if you have any questions or require assistance. Researchers are highly encouraged to contact to discuss potential deadline issues and work out a solution prior to the expiry of any Animal Research Authority.
