OLAW Closed due to Lapse in Federal Government Funding


The NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare  is now closed due to the lapse in Federal government funding. 


For the duration of the funding lapse, PHS-Assured institutions are encouraged to delay sending all Assurance documents, preliminary or final reports of noncompliance or IACUC suspensions as required under PHS Policy IV.F.3., or other correspondence due to OLAW.


OLAW will extend deadlines for all reporting activities as necessary to compensate for the period of the lapse in funding.
