Is the IACUC still conducting Semiannual IACUC Inspections?

All pending semiannual animal facility inspections have been temporarily suspended in response to the Duke directive to cease all non-essential in-person meetings and on-campus activities. We are awaiting regulatory guidance on this regulatory requirement and will act based on their direction. If a facility inspection has already been performed in your animal use location, you may receive communications related to the findings. If a response or action is required and you cannot perform the activity due to the COVID-19 response please let us know. This includes delaying correction of deficiencies because you cannot go on-site. In other words, do not go on-site to correct a facility inspection deficiency unless it is essential to the animals’ well-being.
