OLAW has published a new Guide Notice, NOT-OD-21-118, Request for Information (RFI) on Flexibilities to Reduce Administrative Burden While Continuing to Apply the PHS Policy to Zebrafish Immediately After Hatching.

In response to the 21st Century Cures Act, OLAW is seeking input on clarifying flexibilities available to Assured institutions when using zebrafish in animal activities. This Notice provides justification for continuing to apply the PHS Policy to zebrafish immediately after hatching. It also provides a list of flexibilities to reduce administrative burden and OLAW’s expectations for Assured institutions when conducting zebrafish activities. Comments must be submitted electronically on the RFI webpage on or before August 9th, 2021, at 11:59 PM ET.

For more information, visit our new zebrafish webpage.
