Are you confused about the new guidance on the qualifications of nonscientific and nonaffiliated members? Or unsure on the use of alternate members? Do you know the reporting requirements for your NSF-funded animal activities? In this webinar, OLAW staff will answer these and other questions that you have submitted.

Clarification of “de novo”: PHS Policy IV.C.5. requires “The IACUC shall conduct continuing review of each previously approved, ongoing activity covered by this Policy at appropriate intervals as determined by the IACUC, including a complete review in accordance with IV.C.1.-4. at least once every three years.” To maintain consistency with the PHS Policy, “de novo” should be replaced "complete review.”
