It is possible that procedures authorised under a project licence could result in below threshold severity. This occurs when a procedure was originally considered to cause above-threshold pain or suffering, but in retrospect this did not occur. This can include:

  • breeding of genetically altered animals under project licence authority but without a harmful phenotype
  • dosing with a compound in feed where the animals ate normally and suffered no consequences of being dosed
