"The 2018 Oversight Process: Changes and Charting the Future"

Date: Tue, Jan 8, 2019

Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM EDT


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 we implemented an ongoing review process to optimize our efficiency in using the Public Search Tool. By regularly downloading and analyzing data throughout the year we were able to get a better understanding of the overall inspection process. In addition we were able to quickly notice a change in that process in terms of the numbers and types of citations issued. In addition to our annual review of the inspection data, we hope to provide an update on the progress toward the reduction of the administrative burden on investigators mandated in the 21st Century Cures as well as any revisions to the USDA’s Animal Welfare Inspection Guide. We invite you to join us on January 8, 2019 when we look at the data from FY 2018 and analyze that data in terms of the changes that have occurred in the inspection process as well to review any changes that may be forthcoming as result of ongoing activities to reduce the regulatory/administrative burden. We think you will find it interesting to see what we found and we believe that this information will help you manage your own animal care and use program in the coming fiscal year.
