Section 1.Introduction

A.State the name of the programme unit and, if applicable, its parent organisation.  List all organisations (schools, centres, etc.) included within the programme unit.

B.Give a brief overview of the institution, its purpose and how the animal care and use programme relates to the mission of the institution.

C.Note that AAALAC International’s three primary standards are the European Convention for the Protection of Vertebrate Animals Used for Experimental and Other Scientific Purposes, Council of Europe (ETS 123); the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (Guide), NRC, 2011; and the Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Research and Teaching (Ag Guide), FASS 2010..  Other regulations and guidelines used (e.g., Directive 2010/63, national legislation, GLP, etc) may also apply.  Describe which of the three primary standards and other regulations and guidelines are used as standards for the institutional animal care and use programme and how they are applied.  

D.Describe the organisation and include an organisational chart or charts (as an Appendix/Appendices) detailing the lines of authority from the Institutional Official (e.g., Responsible Person at the Institution, Certificate Holder) to the Designated Veterinarian, the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee/Oversight Body (IACUC/OB), and the personnel providing animal care.  Please include the title, name (Note: For individuals whose information is publically available, provide the titles and names; for individuals whose information is not publically available, you may provide titles only.), and degree (if applicable) of each individual at the level of supervisor or above.  Names of animal care staff below the title of supervisor need not be included, but the titles and number of animal care personnel under each supervisor should be included.  If animal care responsibility is administratively decentralized, the organisational chart or charts must include all animal care programmes, indicating the relationship between each administrative unit and personnel, the Designated Veterinarian, and the Institutional Official.
