  • Where it concerns the experimental manipulation of animals, has been approved by the ethics review committee at the institution or practice at which the studies were conducted, when such a committee exists;
  • Has been approved by all authors (applies to presentations and publications at the conference);
  • For studies using client-owned animals, privacy should be maintained and the information should be anonymised.
