Research Facility Annual Report

Research Facility Annual Reports

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)
