University of Toronto (U of T) - AUP Review Process
Once an AUP is submitted online through My Research Animal Protocols (MRAP), it is reviewed by the Local Animal Care Committee (LACC) at the next scheduled LACC meeting. At the meeting, the LACC decides if any additional information needs to be provided prior to protocol approval.
Protocol revision requests are returned to the protocol author via the MRAP Inbox. The author should submit revisions in a timely manner for review by the LACC or its delegates.
The protocol is approved if all revisions are appropriately addressed. Any further revisions required will be identified and returned to the author with guidance.
