The 8th edition of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (ILAR 2010) contains nearly twice as many “musts” as the 7th Edition. AAALAC will begin using the new edition for program evaluations beginning in September 2011 and, if OLAW adopts the new Guide (comments are due by March 25), the proposed implementation plan would require PHS-assured institutions to use it for at least one evaluation by March of 2012. Beyond mandatory requirements indicated by the word “must,” the 8th edition also contains over 600 “shoulds” that may require changes in your institution’s animal care and use program. Join us on Tuesday, April 12, 2011, as we review the changes in the 8th edition of the Guide and highlight the new Guide’s possible impact on your Animal Care and Use Program.
