Understanding laboratory animal law is necessary and fundamental for all researchers relying on results from animal research, as well as for laboratory animal veterinarians, institutional officials, members of Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs), and veterinarians in training. Both the scope and particulars of these laws are important. Those interested in or impacted by the laboratory animal laws can have significantly different perspectives about the scope or efficiency of the regulations or their implementation.
Annual reports for the period January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017 are due to OLAW by January 31, 2018 as required by the PHS Policy.
