Some organizations may face higher risk for remediation costs due to the nature of the research. Other potential problems include increased administrative burden or noncompliance situations that need to be reported to OLAW, APHIS, and/or AAALAC which leaves the organization vulnerable to public scrutiny. The intent is to ensure the humane treatment of the laboratory animals, but occasionally institutions can get tripped up. Remediation costs can even be incurred for something as small as a sick or injured research animal needing to be replaced. With simple issues causing expensive fallout, remediation costs should be avoided as much as possible.
