An Audit of Animal Welfare Act Compliance by U.S.
Research Facilities; With Detailed Examinations of Fifteen Nationally
By Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director,
Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!
California State University, Los Angeles
The most recent inspection report available for
California State University is from 10/26/01. This report discusses only
violations in the area of IACUCs referring to several projects that do not
have sufficient information regarding searches for alternatives to painful
procedures. This is listed as a repeat violation. More damning information
is contained in a report from 9/29/00. In this inspection report the
facility is cited for inadequate veterinary care: "There is still no
written program of veterinary care by the attending veterinarian at this
facility – original correction date was 10/24/99." Other violations are in
areas of sanitation, and housekeeping. The report concludes with: "This is
a warning that you have had the same alleged violation(s) documented on
your last two inspections. You are being given the opportunity to correct
these violations only for the purpose of facilitating compliance with the
Animal Welfare Act and the regulations and standards. If legal action is
initiated against you, all alleged violations may be used as evidence at a
formal adjudicatory hearing."
It is somewhat puzzling that the most recent report does
not discuss the resolution of violations from the previous inspection in
the areas of sanitation and registration. Also, no mention is made of the
potential regulatory action discussed in the previous report.
