USDA Animal Care Posts Updated Inspection Guide

USDA Animal Care has posted its updated Inspection Guide on its website.

The Inspection Guide is a reference document intended to assist our inspectors. It is an aid to help ensure consistent inspections of facilities regulated under the Animal Welfare Act. The Inspection Guide does not supersede but rather supplements the other resources at each inspector’s disposal, which include: the Animal Welfare Act and its associated regulations and standards; USDA Animal Care policies; the Inspection Requirements Handbook; standard operating procedures; and the inspector’s professional judgment.

The Inspection Guide is posted here: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/animal_welfare/downloads/Inspection%20Guide%20-%20November%202013.pdf.

At USDA Animal Care, ensuring the welfare of the animals we regulate is at the heart of everything we do.
