CCAC assessment panels carry out visits to institutions participating in the CCAC programs based on CCAC guidelines, policy statements and associated documents.
Each assessment panel is composed of at least one scientist and a veterinarian, selected for their experience in animal experimentation and care relevant to the institution to be visited. Each panel also includes a community representative, selected from a list of individuals nominated by the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, and usually drawn from the geographical area of the institution. A CCAC assessment director is present at every assessment visit as an ex officio member of the assessment panel.
