Locked vs. Unlocked Status

Once a study is submitted to the IRB, it will be LOCKED

VERY IMPORTANT:

You can continue to obtain investigator signatures on a locked package. Under no circumstances should you create a new package just for the purpose of obtaining signatures.

Packages can only be unlocked by ORC Staff. This can be done if you let us know that you’ve made an error in something that you just submitted, or if we let you know that we see something that is missing or needs to be fixed before forwarding to CORIHS.

When you need to respond to a CORIHS review, or if you want to submit an amendment, or continuing review, you will create a new package for the project by adding documents in the designer for that project. See sections VIII and IX for details.
