Updated FAQ B.5. What is a quorum and when is a quorum required?
A quorum is a majority of the total number of voting members of the IACUC. A majority vote of the quorum present at a convened meeting is required for the IACUC to:
- conduct full committee review and approval of a proposed project or of a significant change to a project, and
- suspend an activity.
If a recusal results in the loss of a quorum, the business associated with the conflict of interest must be tabled until a quorum is present.
