Prepare and complete your Animal Use Protocol application
Request access to the Animal Health Unit website for information on who to contact and what details are required for your animal use protocol. The Animal Health Unit website contains standard operating procedures, a list of available animal user training and links to more information and key contacts.
If assistance is required to complete your animal use protocol, contact your Protocol Administrator for guidance.

All Principal Investigators and their laboratory or teaching personnel working with animals must register and complete mandatory animal user training prior to starting any work with animals or animal-derived tissues. Visit the Institutional Animal User Training Program website for further information.
Complete and submit your Animal Use Protocol application in the IRISS system. Once submitted, your application goes to the ACC for review. There are monthly submission deadlines which are posted on the Animal Health Unit website. Assuming your application is submitted prior to the monthly deadline, review by the ACC takes approximately 4 weeks.
