The IACUC administrator's guide to animal program management

The purpose of the IACUC Administrator’s Handbook is to assist the IACUC administrator charged with developing, managing, and overseeing a program of animal care and animal use. There are more than sufficient regulations and policies governing animal care and use and for very good reasons. These federal standards must be applicable to all circumstances and situations. They tend to be a collection of expectations and goals that provide organizations the flexibility to develop practices for achievement.

The regulatory expectations may be clear, but the manner of developing the operations and practices to assure compliance while ensuring animal welfare is often not prescribed. In this reference, the authors provide many options and possibilities for specific operational practices (e.g., how to build a well-functioning IACUC, what a functional protocol template looks like) to satisfy the regulatory requirements.

The material provided in this handbook is a compilation of several years of best practices meetings among IACUC administrators across the country. Best practices meeting attendees from private, public, governmental, and academic organizations have helped to shape and develop the information offered in the IACUC Administrator’s Handbook. It is through the insight of several hundred colleagues—their successes as well as their failures—that the authors have distilled suggestions and considerations for your local animal care and use program.
