Research Facility Annual Summary Report

Research Facility Annual Summary Report

Each USDA-registered research facility is required by the Animal Welfare Act to submit an Annual Report (APHIS Form 7023) that documents its use of animals for research, testing, teaching and/or experimentation. USDA Animal Care compiles these numbers and produces five reports each year. Each report is based on a specific pain category – designated by a particular column on the Annual Report. The categories are:

  • Column B (animals held by a facility but not used in any research that year)
  • Column C (animals used in research; no pain involved; no pain drugs administered)
  • Column D (animals used in research; pain involved; pain drugs administered)
  • Column E (animals used in research; pain involved; no pain drugs administered)
  • Column F (total number of animals used in research; Column C + Column D + Column E)

AWA Inspection and Annual Reports

Please Note: On Feb. 17, 2017, APHIS posted the first batch of annual reports of research institutions and inspection reports for certain Federal research facilities that the Agency regulates under the Animal Welfare Act. The reports posted are part of a comprehensive review of the documents the Agency removed from its website in early February and are in the same redacted form as before. The reposted information can be found on our website,  here. As announced on Feb. 7, 2017, the agency will continue to review records and determine which information is appropriate for reposting.
