Accreditations

Smithers Avanza Toxicology Services is a fully accredited research organization.  We are a USDA‑registered Class R research facility that is accredited by The Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC) and assured by the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW).  We also hold a Controlled Substance Registration Certificate issued by the DEA and a Controlled Dangerous Substances Registration from the State of Maryland.  These registrations and assurances are issued after extensive application processes and require periodic on‑site inspections to maintain compliance. 

We are also a GLP-compliant laboratory, with routine biennial inspections conducted by the FDA.  We have a history of FDA inspections spanning 20 years, with our last inspection conducted in July of 2015. After a 3-day inspection, the visit was concluded and no FDA Form 483 was issued.  The Establishment Inspection Report (EIR) was issued in December 2015, closing the inspection and maintaining our good standing with the FDA.
