The ARC recently updated two policies and approved a new policy:

  1. Tumor Development in Rodents – revised
    Updated to clarify the requirement to euthanize animals based on impact of tumor burden.
  2. Environmental Enrichment – revised
    Updated to remove information about social housing.
  3. Social HousingNEW!
    Describes the requirement for social housing of social species and how to document exceptions.

Please visit the Office of Animal Research Oversight (OARO) website and review these policies, as relevant, at your earliest convenience. Please do not hesitate to contact us at (310) 206-6308 or if you have any questions.
