Inspection of Animal Care Facilities

The IACUC will routinely inspect university animal care, use, and housing facilities. The IACUC will determine if the following features of the facility are adequate, inadequate, or not applicable: floor space, ventilation, temperature and humidity control, illumination, animal caging, cleanliness, handling and storage of waste, species separation, access to food and water, food-nutrition, food-storage, records, and procedures.

Following inspection, the IACUC will report to the chair(s) of the department(s) using the facility and will describe deficiencies, if any, and provide recommendations, if any.
