Guideline #16

Animal Care and Use Program Oversight: IACUC Standards for Compliance

Institutions and individuals using animals for research, testing and / or teaching must acknowledge and accept both legal and ethical responsibility for the animals under their care as specified in the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) and its associated Animal Welfare Regulations (AWRs), the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, the Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Agricultural Research and Testing, and the Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (PHS Policy).

It is the policy of the IACUC that these standards and guidelines form the basis for central evaluation and review of all of the animal care and use program and facilities at KSU, regardless of the source of funding, College, or Department.
