How do you know what form to use?

Each form serves to:

  • Let the IRB know what action you wish to take.
  • Provide the necessary information to allow the IRB to decide if they may approve that action.
  • Document that an action took place.

If you have more than just one action taking place (renewing your study approval AND changing the study protocol), you will need to address the actions separately:

  • Use the correct form for each action.
  • Submit the materials for each action separately. DO NOT attach a study change to your study renewal. These are different processes and must stay separate.
  • For each action, submit three full set of copies which will be distributed to the IRB sub-committee reviewing that action.
