All new initial studies (Exempt/Expedited/Full Board) reviewed by the IRB/HRPP after May 1, 2022 will be subject to the One Application Policy. Studies that receive IRB approval or an Exempt Determination will receive documents stamped with IRB/HRPP Approval that must be retained in their study record. HRPP will issue an updated version of the IRB/HRPP Approved stamped documents with each subsequent submission approval.
Studies that fall under the One Application Policy will maintain a single, active application that reflects current study procedures and incorporates all IRB-approved amendments and HRPP-accepted modifications. Stamped documents will be issued to the PI along with the Approval Memo for all initial approvals. The IRB/HRPP Approved stamp will be located in the footer of the document. The stamped document must be retained in your study records.
