Submission of Annual Update

PROCEDURES FOR SUBMISSION OF RESEARCH PROPOSALS FOR IRB REVIEW

J. SUBMISSION OF ANNUAL UPDATE

Non-exempt proposals are approved for a maximum period of one year only. For projects which continue beyond one year, it is the responsibility of the principal investigator to submit to the IRB an annual update (Appendix G). The first annual update is due twelve months following the date the proposal was approved and released. Upon receipt of the annual update, the IRB will review and approve continuation of the project for the next twelve-month period.

If the IRB determines that a project requires review more often than annually, the investigator will be so notified.

When a project is terminated/completed, the investigator must immediately notify the IRB in writing.
