*Effective July 25, 2016, OLAW implemented a new Animal Welfare Assurance database that utilizes a new numbering format (D00-00000). However, the old numbers (A000-01) will be retained for the life of the Assurance. Institutions with an Assurance will receive a new number and may use either the new or old Assurance number in communications with NIH. For convenience, OLAW will reference both new and old Assurance numbers in Assurance-related correspondence. Institutions will be able to view the new Assurance number on the OLAW website list of Assured institutions (Domestic | Foreign) and in any Assurance-related correspondence from OLAW. Institutions seeking a new Animal Welfare Assurance will be provided an Assurance number in the new format only.
