Veterinary Verification and Consultation (VVC)

Veterinarian Verification and Consultation (VVC) is an expedited process the PI can utilize to make minor modifications to previously approved AUP activities without having to submit an Amendment.

Modifications must not result in a change in study objective, or increase pain, distress or degree of invasiveness beyond what is currently approved in the AUP.

More information about VVC can be found on the Approval Process page as well as the VVC Explained document (Texas A&M authentication required).

Contact the Animal Welfare Office staff at 979.845.1828 or for more information on the VVC process.
