During NABR’s recent webinar, “Reducing Burden: Options and Opportunities,” we announced our annual review of USDA inspection data was scheduled for January 9, 2018. Since then, a scheduling conflict has occurred, so we are moving the webinar to February 6, 2018. Please mark your calendar for the new date and join us for “The 2017 USDA Inspection Data: Celebrating a New Milestone in Compliance?”
Each year, NABR obtains information from the USDA’s Animal Care Inspection System database to review the inspection results for the previous fiscal year. This year, that effort was complicated by lack of access to the searchable database which could be used to download data into spreadsheets for what would have been a relatively straightforward analysis of the actual inspection data. The new Public Search Tool provides data efficiently, but the data is difficult to analyze. Fortunately, with our analysis, we will provide you with valuable insight into the inspection process.
We invite you to join NABR on February 6, 2018 when we look at the data from FY 2017 as we compare it to analyses from previous years. Our findings will demonstrate how the research community continues to improve its compliance with the letter and spirit of the regulations. This information will help you manage your own animal care and use program in the coming fiscal year. Registration is complimentary for dues-paying NABR members and subscribers.
