The aim of the non-technical project summary is to provide objective information about animal experimental projects that are subject to authorization via the internet. The federal institute for risk assessment (BfR) is responsible for the publication. Due to a demand in the Guideline 2016/63/EU article 43, these publications were incorporated into §8 TierSchG and §41 TierSchVersV of the german national law. The summary is not allowed to contain any institutional or personal data. The summary is not allowed to contain personal or institutional information/data. The specifications regarding the protection of intellectual property and protection of proprietary secrets remain valid. It is on the side of the applicant to ensure the safety of their respective intelectual property and sensitive information while filling out the form.
For the creation of a NTP, please use the online form of the BfR. Be advised that there is a helpful guideline for the creation of non-technical project summaries of the BfR for animal experimental projects that are subject to authorization. The online form can be found here:
Please use the the same title for the NTP nad your application. After creation of the NTP, the system will provide you with an NTP-ID. This NTP-ID has to be provided in your application form as well as a copy of the actual text. Without it, the application cannot be forwarded to the regional council Karlsruhe.
The BfR has changed the method to submit non-technical project summaries and receipt of an identification number (NTP-ID) as of August 2015. All NTPs which have already been submitted remain valid. It is not necessary to redo already submitted NTPs for the new system.
