Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 74804 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 231 / Thursday, December 1, 2011 / Notices 158, 42 U.S.C. 289d, and incorporated by reference at 42 CFR 52.8 and 42 CFR 52a.8, has required that institutions receiving PHS support for animal activities base their animal care and use programs on the current edition of the Guide. Since 1996, programs have been based on the 7th Edition of the Guide. The 8th Edition of the Guide was published in January 2011, following a study by the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research of the National Academy of Sciences. The 8th Edition of the Guide contains substantive changes and additions from the previous edition. To gain insight from institutions on the impact of changes to the Guide on their animal care and use programs, NIH sought comments on whether it should adopt the 8th Edition of the Guide and on the proposed implementation plan. On February 24, 2011, NIH issued a Federal Register Notice (see http:// edocket.access.gpo.gov/2011/pdf/2011– 4172.pdf) requesting public comments on (1) NIH’s adoption of the 8th Edition of the Guide as a basis for evaluating institutional programs receiving or proposing to receive PHS support for activities involving animals and (2) NIH’s proposed implementation plan (if NIH decided to adopt the 8th Edition of the Guide). The original implementation plan proposed that institutions complete at least one semiannual program and facility evaluation using the 8th Edition of the Guide as the basis for evaluation by March 31, 2011. Comments were collected via the Internet through a Web link available in the Federal Register and on the OLAW Web site, where respondents could also access both the 7th and 8th Editions of the Guide. The original comment period was scheduled from February 24, 2011, to March 24, 2011. This comment period was extended twice, on March 18 and April 21. Ultimately, the comment period spanned 90 days, closing on May 24, 2011. In addition to the time extension, the NIH removed the original 6,000-character limit on the comment form fields in the April 21 extension to maximize the opportunity for individuals and organizations to provide comments to NIH. A total of 806 responses were submitted by Assured institutions, professional organizations, animal advocacy organizations, and individuals. The comments and an analysis may be viewed at http:// grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/ 2011guidecomments/web_listing.htm. II.
