SOPs may be used to complement an AEC application form and /or save time for the researcher/teacher. Where a SOP from another institution is used, which is not found on the UQ website, it must be attached to the application. Any SOP must be cited in the relevant section and must include its number and title, for example: 

AHT 53 Intravenous (Femoral) vein cannulation in Rats
DERM/365 Trapping a koala (see attached)
How do I create a Standard Operating Procedure? 
NOTE: ANY variation in technique from an SOP as written must be stated in the application and the variation described in full. Similarly where an SOP requires details on the use of anaesthetic, analgesic or any other information this must be provided in the application.
If an SOP cannot be located in the expected category below, please check all other categories.
