In June 2008, for all Faculties and most Research Institutes, the peer review process changed. Applicable to all Facility Animal Care Committees (FACCs), the Animal Care Committees do not administer this process anymore. For projects funded by non-peer-reviewed sources, a researcher must request independent peer review from the Associate Dean of his/her Faculty or from the Director or Associate Director of the Research Institute of his/her Affiliated Hospital. Go to the Peer Review section for contact information of McGill Faculty Associate Dean's Offices.
Theory and practical training is mandatory for all people who intend to work with animals
For researchers working with non-human primates, participation into the Occupational Health Program is mandatory.
The researcher or instructor must submit the protocols and amendments to his/her home Facility Animal Care Committee (FACC). The host FACC will be consulted if the animals are housed and/or procedures done in their animal facilities.
