April 24, 2012 - On-line Modification to Add Staff form

 

In order to go “green”, UCAR has tested an on-line Modification to Add Staff Form with several research laboratories. The process has gone well.

We now would like to launch the on-line form. This is the share point link UCAR Modification to Add Faculty, Staff and Students. Username: urmc-sh\your domain name Password: domain password.

Fill out the form completely and click OK at the bottom of the page – if any necessary information is missing, you will not be able to submit. There is no need to print out or send anything else to the UCAR office. Once approved, you will receive an approval email just as you have in the past.

If you get an error message regarding your login, send an email to UCAR@urmc.rochester.edu.

If you have any questions, please contact the UCAR Office (x5-1693).

Adoption and Implementation of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals: Eighth Edition

The NIH has issued a Federal Register Notice (PDF) announcing its adoption of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals: Eighth Edition (Guide) effective January 1, 2012. The notice:

  • provides the adoption and implementation plan for the 8th Edition of the Guide;
  • provides Position Statements to clarify how the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) expects Assured institutions to implement the Guide and announces a comment period for the public to comment on their understanding of the Position Statements; and
  • announces that public comments on the 8th Edition of the Guide collected in spring 2011 and OLAW’s analysis of those comments are available on the OLAW website at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/2011guidecomments/web_listing.htm.

OLAW has developed the Adoption of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals: Eighth Edition webpage that provides the Position Statements (with links to comment), resources for implementing the Guide, and listing of public comments on adoption of the Guide all in one location.
