Changes, Modifications, Revisions, or Clarifications to Previously Approved Research

Proposed changes to previously approved Exempt, Expedited, or Full Board research must be requested in writing by submitting an Amendment Application. Proposed changes to previously approved research must undergo IRB review and approval must be granted prior to implementing the changes, except when necessary to eliminate immediate potential harm to participants.

Be sure to clearly identify proposed changes to previously approved materials by using track changes or highlighting. Submit any new and revised materials along with a completed application at least 3 weeks prior to the date you would like to implement the proposed changes. If you have a different timeline you need to follow, contact Research Compliance Services as soon as possible.
