Storage of Informed Consent Forms

I. STORAGE OF INFORMED CONSENT FORMS

Signed copies of informed consent forms must be maintained by the principal investigator and be stored in a secure manner. Unless otherwise specified by Federal and/or state regulations, retention shall be for a period of at least three years beyond the termination of the study. If the investigator resigns from the University before the end of the designated period, the informed consent forms must be submitted to the IRB unless otherwise specified.
