Review / Approval Timeline

All documents requiring IACUC review (i.e., new protocols, renewals, modifications) received by the 21st of the month will be entered into the review cycle for the subsequent month. Final approval requires a full committee decision which occurs on the last Wednesday of the assigned review month. IACUC approval of projects involving the use of potentially hazardous agents in live animals is contingent upon review and approval by Occupational Health and Safety and other Safety Committees as applicable (e.g., Institutional Biosafety Committee, Radiation Safety, etc.). Please reference the OH&S web site (http://www.healthsafe.uab.edu/pages/biosafety/projectregistration.html) for the OH&S time line for review of projects.

NOTE: Submission of incomplete animal use forms or incomplete OH&S forms may result in deferral of IACUC and OH&S review until the next monthly review cycle.
