Animal Use Data Working Groups
In 2016, a working group was formed to review the current animal data collection and reporting processes and recommend improvements to all parts of the system. The working group came up with nineteen recommendations. These recommendations were the result of two years of thoughtful deliberations, which included incorporating feedback from a broad range of CCAC stakeholders.
In 2021, to fully understand the challenges faced by institutions in the implementation of the proposed changes, the CCAC formed a consultative working group, made up of knowledgeable individuals both from institutions where concerns have been expressed and from the ones ready to collect data according to the new requirements. This working group is tasked with understanding and providing advice on overcoming the challenges to implementation of the revised collection and submission of animal use data.
