ABSTRACT

The GEU IACUC conducted a program review during the October IACUC meeting. The IACUC administrator reminded committee members that each component of the program must be evaluated to confirm that it complies with federal regulations and policies. To ensure that the complete program was reviewed, the GEU IACUC used the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare’s (OLAW’s) “Semiannual Program Review and Facility Inspection Checklist” (grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/sampledoc /index.htm) for guidance and as a reference. The IACUC administrator informed committee members that the review would be conducted by systematically going through each point on the checklist.
