IACUC Office Staff:

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

RARC IACUC office coordinates inspections
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. 

RARC sends an email notification to research staff approximately two to four weeks prior to an inspection.

The inspection
Someone knowledgeable about the facility or the laboratory must be present to answer questions and give facility access to the inspection team. 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, IACUCs cannot give each lab group an exact arrival time. However the inspection team will try to accommodate special scheduling requests; if you have time constraints, please respond to the notification email promptly to make scheduling arrangements.

Inspectees will be notified of the inspection findings via email within one to three working days of the inspection and must correct each deficiency by the required date. You may request extensions from the IACUC.
