Noble Life Sciences granted renewal of full AAALAC accreditation status
Sykesville, MD; July 17, 2017 – Noble Life Sciences, a contract research organization (CRO) providing services to support the development of drugs, vaccines, and medical devices, is pleased to announce that it has been granted a renewal of full accreditation by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) International Council on Accreditation. Noble was first awarded AAALAC full accreditation in October 10, 1989.
The renewal, which was granted after an extensive on-site assessment and review of the Noble Life Sciences animal care and use program by the AAALAC International Council on Accreditation, comes without any recommendations for improvement from AAALAC International. Accredited organizations are re-evaluated every three years.
“The Council recognizes your efforts to achieve a quality animal care and use program and commends you and your staff for the positive actions taken” noted Andrew Grady, Council President-Pro Tem in a letter to Noble.
“We are very proud to be granted renewal of our full accreditation status. It affirms the dedication of our staff to highest standards of animal care and validates our commitment to industry and regulatory guidelines,” said Srujana Cherukuri, CEO of Noble Life Sciences. “AAALAC accreditation is a voluntary process during which our program and our staff undergo intense scrutiny, but we see it as a critical part of our assessment program.”
AAALAC International is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes the humane treatment of animals in science through voluntary accreditation and assessment programs. More than 980 companies, universities, hospitals, government agencies and other research institutions in 44 countries have earned AAALAC accreditation, demonstrating their commitment to responsible animal care and use. These institutions volunteer to participate in AAALAC’s program, in addition to complying with the local, state and federal laws that regulate animal research.
