Animal Use Protocols (AUPs)

  • PIs must complete and submit their AUP via MRAP – more information on the process can be found here
  • All students who will be handling animals must be listed on the AUP
  • Amendments to the AUPs are required when there is a change in procedure(s), personnel, and animals (e.g. strain, #s, etc.) on approved AUPs
  • Please review the Researchers’ Guide to the Regulations
  • For further inquiries, contact the Animal Ethics and Compliance Manager at the Research Oversight and Compliance Office by email or phone at 416-946-3608

My Research Animal Protocol (MRAP)

  • The MRAP Animal Counting User Guide is important for all users responsible for recording animal numbers
  • The BSF will enter animal orders, but labs are responsible for entering numbers of animals used/removed (e.g. for experiments, breeding, euthanasia, etc.)
