Each year NABR obtains information from the USDA’s Animal Care Inspection System database using the Public Search Tool to review the inspection results for the previous fiscal year and provides a review and analysis of that information. The Public Search Tool was updated in September 2020 and in addition to the inspection reports, now includes the number of Teachable Moments issued during each inspection and the actual documentation has been posted as of January 2020. The Public Search tool website now also contains information on enforcement actions including letters of warning that the USDA recently began reissuing.
While the normal inspection process was disrupted by the restrictions imposed by the pandemic during FY2020, the number of inspections conducted in FY 2021 appeared to return to the normal level and early analysis of the data indicates that there were more citations than in either FY 2018 or FY2019. In addition, we have a full year of teachable moments to review and analyze. In this webinar, we will present our annual review of the inspection data and analysis of the type of non-compliant issues cited. In addition, we will review the teachable moments and the impact that including teachable moments as citations will have on the compliance record of registered research facilities.

Questions should be submitted in advance to [email protected]. They will be reviewed and formatted to prevent duplication and will be answered in the order they are received, so please submit them as soon as possible.
