Semiannual Inspections

Consistent with USDA Animal Welfare Regulations and PHS Policy, the K-State IACUC performs routine semiannual inspections of research and teaching animal facilities.

Semiannual IACUC visits are announced ahead of time. The inspections are scheduled for the first part of April and October annually. The K-State IACUC and URCO will do our best to accommodate PIs and facility manager schedules within this timeframe. URCO staff will contact PIs and lab representatives to schedule inspections within a month before the anticipated visit.
