Animal Ethics Committee

The Animal Ethics Committee (AEC) was established in 1997. The committee functions according to the guidelines laid down by the Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA). The Seth GS Medical College and KEM hospital is registered with the CPCSEA since 1999 for the purpose of “Breeding and Research on animals”.

The Animal house was inspected by the CPCSEA members in May 2015 and inspection reports of 3 years viz 2013, 2014 and-2015 were sent to the CPCSEA for renewal of registration. Following this, we received renewal upto 2017. The new registration no. is 60/PO/ReBi/S/99/CPCSEA.
