FASEB Webinar: Streamlining Institutional Requirements for Animal Research
March 18, 2019 | 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT
During this webinar, OLAW and USDA will join representatives from institutional animal welfare and compliance offices to help clarify what is and is not required by the federal government in an effort to reduce regulatory burden while maintaining high standards of animal care. The discussion will center on a 2018 survey conducted by the Council on Governmental Relations on actions that could be taken to reduce administrative burden associated with animal research and IACUCs at the institution level. The survey report suggests that institutions are more likely to take action to reduce administrative burden when federal agencies standardize requirements, provide clear directives and address uncertainty.
