The NPS is requesting approval of a previously approved collection and two additional new forms that will be used by the Institutional Animal Care and use Committee (NPS IACUC/the Committee) to collect information from researchers, and to ensure compliance with the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), its regulations (AWAR) and standards, and the Interagency Research Animal Committee (IRAC) principles, for projects involving the use of vertebrate animals in research, teaching, and training. As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and as part of our continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, we invite the general public and other federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on this IC.
