IP053: SCAR’s Code of Conduct for the Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes in Antarctica

Summary:

The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Code of Conduct (CoC) provides guiding principles to the scientific community for research involving animals. National codes vary in the range of species they encompass but some include all Vertebrata as well as some Invertebrata. This Code of Conduct should be read in concert with Annex II of the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty, which provides guidance on the killing, capturing and handling (“taking”) of native fauna and aims to provide guidance on the interpretation of Article 3 paragraph 6 of this Annex.
