NIH Policy Manual Chapter 3040-2 Revised

The full revision of NIH Policy Manual Chapter (MC) 3040-2 - Animal Care and Use in the Intramural Research Program was approved on April 14, 2023. This is the foundational policy document for the IRP’s program of animal care and use that describes the roles and responsibilities of all individuals involved in the care and use of animals, and ensures the IRP is in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, standards, and policies (i.e., PHS Policy, Animal Welfare Regulations, U.S. Government Principles, etc.). Familiarity with this document is important for all individuals working with animals at the NIH/IRP.
