Laboratory Inspections

The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is charged by the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) and the USDA Animal Welfare Regulations to inspect at least once every six months all of the institution's facilities for activities involving animals.  Compliance is necessary for all institutions performing animal research as well as for continuation of our NIH Assurance and for continued AAALAC International accreditation.

The IACUC requires that you maintain a notebook or set of files that contain copies of your active protocols, correspondence related to those protocols, and any documentation relating to investigator/research technician training.  This notebook should be kept in the laboratory where animal research is being conducted. 

The IACUC Adminstrive Coordinator will be contacting each Primary Investigator, that holds approved protocols with the IACUC, twice a year to fulfill these inspection requirements.
