21st Century Cures Act – Animal Care and Use in Research
In carrying out this effort, the agencies are reviewing numerous reports and surveys that have been published over the last several years addressing the topic of administrative and investigator burden. In addition, the agencies are seeking information to improve the coordination of regulations and policies with respect to research with laboratory animals through various stakeholder listening sessions and a future Request for Information. Public input concerning possible actions that the agencies should consider to improve coordination and harmonization of regulations and policies will provide valuable information for consideration by the agencies.
