In a Stakeholder’s Announcement dated March 2, 2015, the USDA announced that they had revised their Inspection Guide.  This was done to bolster consistency in their compliance inspections and to reflect the improvements they have made in response to the USDA Office of Inspector General’s December 2014 audit report of how they regulate research facilities under the Animal Welfare Act.

This NABR-exclusive on-demand webinar reviews the changes highlighted in that announcement as well as other changes made to Chapter 7 of the Animal Care Inspection – Research Facility Inspection-IACUC Requirements and Protocols.

Those responsible for managing the USDA inspection process and/or your institution’s animal care use program need to be familiar with contents of the AWIG, especially what is contained in Chapter 7. This webinar will help you navigate the changes that have been made so that you can make necessary adjustments to your process and/or program.
