We generalise the standard notion of transversality to maps between manifolds modelled on locally convex spaces and prove that all standard transversal theorems remain valid for this generalised notion.

As first applications, we use our generalised Transversal Density Theorem to prove several simple “generic” results for local smooth maps which parallel the usual ones.
