Submission of External Protocols

When animal work outlined in your protocol is being conducted at another institution the following information must be provided for IACUC review and acceptance:

  1. a copy of the participating institution’s approved protocol;
  2. a copy of the institution’s approval letter; and
  3. a copy of the institution’s Public Health Service (PHS) assurance number, if PHS funded.

Once received and reviewed, if acceptable, the IACUC will issue a letter of acceptance of the external institution’s oversight. The expiration date will coincide with the participating institution’s protocol’s expiration date.
