IACUC Office Staff:

The IACUC inspects every six months
USDA and NIH animal welfare regulations require IACUC inspections every six months. These inspections review regular housing facilities, farms and pastures, PI labs, procedure rooms, and transport vehicles.

IACUC inspections of animal-use areas are coordinated by the RARC IACUC office
The RARC IACUC office staff plan, schedule, and coordinate all IACUC semiannual inspections, and communicate the inspection schedule and results to PIs and facility managers. They send email notifications of upcoming inspections approximately two to four weeks prior to the inspection.

Someone knowledgeable about the facility or the laboratory must be present to allow the team facility access and to answer questions. For facilities, the representative may be the facility manager or a knowledgeable designee. For laboratories, the representative may be the PI, the lab manager, or a knowledgeable designee.

Given the nature of the inspection process it is not possible to give each lab group an exact arrival time. However the IACUC will try to accommodate special scheduling requests: if you have time constraints please respond to the notification email promptly to make suitable arrangements.

Inspectees will be notified of the inspection findings via email within one to three working days of the inspection. Each deficiency must be corrected by the date specified in the report. You may request extensions from the IACUC.
