ACC Policies

All research and teaching at the University of British Columiba involving animals that are housed in University facilities, on private farms, collected in the wild, or held in facilities of the University affiliated institutions requires the prior approval of the Animal Care Committee (ACC).

The ACC is responsible for overseeing the work carried out by all members of UBC who use animals for research, teaching, or testing. The ACC implements and interprets animal care an use policies. While the ACC is located organizationally at the University of British Columbia, the ACC's responsibility for laboratory animal welfare extends beyond UBC to all UBC-supported activities involving animals. An exception to an ACC policy must be described and justified in the Animal Protocol and approved by the full ACC at a convened meeting.
