AAALAC accreditation: Integral to the success of your vivarium construction projects

September 26-27, 2022
Gary Borkowski, DVM, MS, DACLAM
Global Director

AAALAC International is a voluntary accreditation organization for animal care and use programs, and there are currently over 1050 accredited units in over 50 countries worldwide.  The physical plant (vivarium) is one very important component of an animal care and use program, and understanding AAALAC expectations during planning, design and construction can facilitate the accreditation process for institutions.  Dr. Gary Borkowski will present an overview of how an institution applies for and achieves and maintains accreditation, with an emphasis on subjects germane to the physical plant components.  This will include a review of information in AAALAC’s primary standards and reference resources, as well as a review of common physical plant deficiencies seen during AAALAC site visits.
