Investigators may request termination of a protocol at any point if no animals are assigned to the protocol. If you wish to terminate your protocol, simply click on "Terminate," which can be found on the protocol workspace under "Activities" in ARROW. Your protocol will automatically move to "Archives" and relevant animal facility managers will be notified of its termination.
If the protocol is not terminated before the expiration date, and if no renewal application has been received by RARC, a protocol will end on its expiration date.
Whether a protocol ends early or on its expiration date, RARC sends termination notifications to the investigator, department chairperson, attending veterinarian of the relevant IACUC, and the manager of the animal facilities listed on the protocol.
