Article 12 Experimental animals shall be fed with wholesome feed that is up to standard in quality， animals， the second， clean animals， the third， animals carrying no specific pathogens and the fourth， animals carrying no bacteria.
Experimental animals of different classes shall be administered in accordance with the corresponding standards for controlling micro-organisms.
Article 13 Experimental animals shall be fed with wholesome feed that is up to standard in quality. No feed that has become mouldy and rotten， or deteriorated in quality， or moth-eaten or polluted may be used for feeding experimental animals. Green vegetables and fruit that are to be fed directly to experimental animals shall be washed clean and sterilized and shall be kept fresh.
Article 14 The drinking water for experimental animals of the first class shall measure up to the hygiene standards of urban drinking water. The drinking water for experimental animals of the second， third and fourth classes shall measure up to the hygiene standards of urban drinking water and undergo treatment to kill bacteria.
Article 15 The cushioning materials for experimental animals shall， based on the needs of different classes of experimental animals， be treated accordingly so that they shall be clean， dry， absorptive of water， poison-free， pest-free， infection-free and pollution-free.
Chapter III The Quarantine of Experimental Animals and the Control of Their Infectious Diseases
Article 16 Experimental animals that are newly introduced shall be subject to quarantine in isolation. Wild animals that are captured for the purpose of supplementing the sources of breeds or developing new breeds shall be subject to quarantine in isolation in the very localities where they are captured and a certificate to that effect issued by the animal quarantine department shall be obtained. When a wild animal is carried to the place where experimental animals are kept， it shall be subject to quarantine once again before it is allowed into a feeding and breeding room for experimental animals.
Article 17 Experimental animals that must take preventive inoculations shall， in accordance with the requirements of experiments or with the relevant provisions of the Regulations for the Immunization of Poultry and Other Domestic Animals， undergo such inoculations， with the exception of those experimental animals that are to be used as materials for biological products.
Article 18 When an experimental animal dies of an illness， the cause shall be investigated and ascertained in good time， and the case shall be properly handled and kept on file. When an experimental animal contracts an infectious disease， it shall， depending on the circumstances， be destroyed or given medical treatment in isolation immediately. Experimental animals that are likely to be infected shall undergo emergency preventive inoculations. Strict sterilization measures shall be taken for areas inside and outside the feeding and breeding room and the case shall be reported to the higher authority for the administration of experimental animals and to the local animal quarantine and epidemic prevention unit so that emergency preventive measures shall be taken to prevent the spread of the disease.
Chapter IV The Utilization of Experimental Animals
Article 19 In the utilization of experimental animals， only the related ones that are up to standard shall be selected in accordance with the different purposes of the respective experiments. The use of up-to-standard experimental animals shall be taken as one of the basic requirements in the research projects submitted for approval and in assessing the results of such projects. If experimental animals that come short of standard are used， the results of examination and safety assessment thus obtained shall be null and void and the products thus made shall not be used.
Article 20 With respect to an experimental animal that is to be utilized， the following comprehensive data shall be required：
