  • DVR Online Rodent Import Application (NIH Only)
    This form is designed to prevent the introduction of infected rodents and rodent products into the NIH that could adversely affect the health of rodents used in research; directly or indirectly interfere with research; or pose a health hazard to personnel.  The form must be filled out and submitted to your Animal Program Director and the importation approved before the animals or product can be accepted into an NIH animal facility or laboratory.  For further information and discussion of requirements, refer to the NIH Policy Manual 3043-1: Introduction of Rodents and Rodent Products.

    NIH veterinarians may find this form helpful during the importation process when contacting ‘outside’ originating facilities, and later when evaluating documentation of their pathogen monitoring and control programs.
