During the Visit

The following is an overview of a typical one-day assessment visit.

  • Morning meeting with CCAC panel and institutional representatives
  • Review of protocols and standard operating procedures
  • Lunch
  • Tour of any animal facilities
  • Panel meeting in camera
  • Summary meeting with institutional representatives

Sample agendas for different types of assessments and more complete information on the various elements of the agenda are provided to help institutions prepare for the assessment of their animal care and use program. However, these examples are offered as a guide only since the agenda, for any particular visit, may be modified to accommodate institutional or CCAC needs, following discussion with the assessment director responsible for the visit.
