OLAW has published a new Guide Notice, NOT-OD-21-161, Request for Information (RFI) on Departures from the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals.
In response to the 21st Century Cures Act, OLAW is seeking input on clarifying guidance to Assured institutions regarding the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) reporting requirements for departures from the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (Guide). It also provides two new tools for stakeholder input through the RFI:
- A Guide Exceptions list
- A Guide Must Statements checklist
Comments must be submitted electronically on the RFI webpage on or before November 1, 2021, at 11:59 PM ET.
For more information on departures, visit the updated webpage on departures from the Guide, which includes a streamlined reporting requirements table, updated flowchart, and links to useful resources.
