Animal ethic is very crucial for researchers and students in conducting animal studies. Each institutions has their own committee that had been authorized to observe the animal ethic practices among the community of the university. At International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), IIUM Animal Care and Use Committee (I-ACUC) has been appointed to cater on the animal ethic issues in the university. Students and researchers should apply for approval from I-ACUC before conducting an animal research.
