New Report: Promoting Regulatory Efficiency in Animal Research

October 23, 2017

A new report, “Reforming Animal Regulations: Workshop Recommendations to Reduce Regulatory Burden,” proposes changes to federal regulations, policies, and guidelines governing the use of animals in research. Report recommendations are a product of collaborative efforts among FASEB, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and the Council on Governmental Relations (COGR), with support from the National Association for Biomedical Research (NABR).
Developed using feedback and insight gathered at an April 2017 workshop convened by FASEB, AAMC and COGR, with support from NABR, recommendations are directed to federal agencies involved in the oversight of federally funded animal research. Primary targeting the U.S. National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the report aims to address the numerous conflicting, outdated, or ineffective regulations that do not improve animal welfare.
