Authority to transfer the mouse line to a project license
Please consider whether you have authority on your Project License to import, breed and phenotype the new mouse line. Please consult the local NACWO or the local Home Office Inspector prior to commencing the line import, if the question of authority is unclear. It can frequently be the case that a Project License amendment is necessary, for example, should the new line display phenotypes which might exceed authorized severity limits.
Project Licenses (especially older licenses) may require a Home Office Transfer Form to be completed depending on the wording within the Project License. Please see the following link for more details http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/science-research/animal-research/auth-trans/.
