About the UAWC

  • When to submit an "amendment" or a "revision"
    A Principal Investigator's (PI's) research plan may change and evolve while an approved study is in progress especially since protocols are often written and approved before the funding is obtained to commence work using animals.
  • What is a "Major" protocol Change
    Examples of change in animal use procedures that could affect animal welfare and are generally considered to be major (significant), therefore warranting a revision and rewrite of the protocol for UAWC review.
