Submit an Amendment to Approved Study

You will create, and submit a new package for the project. The following steps will help ensure a smooth submission.

In your “My Projects” view, click on the title of the project.  This will take you to the Project Overview page.

  1. Click the Project History button to the left.
  2. Click the Create New Package button in the middle of the page (if you don’t see the button, you were not granted access to create new packages when the study was shared with you)
  3. Click on the ‘New Document Package’’, which will take you into the Designer where you can work on documents for the new package via the methods described above in Section #3 to either revise a previously submitted document, registration form, or upload a new document for review (e.g., new grant, etc).

    For SCRO, upload a cover letter as well to explain the changes.

    For IBC, upload the ‘Request for an Amendment of Approved Protocol  for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules (rsNAM)’ available in the IBC Designer Library in IRBNet.

    For IACUC, upload the ‘Request for a Minor Amendment to IACUC-Approved Use of Animals in Research and Educational Activities’ available in the IACUC Designer Library in IRBNet (note: major amendments to IACUC require a new, full application to be submitted)

  4. Submit a new registration form: This is done by clicking the ‘Add New Document’ button in the Designer, and ‘add’ the online wizard document called ‘Registration Form for IBC, IACUC or SCRO’ (lower, shaded box). Follow guided directions to complete this, in which you will be asked questions about your proposed use of animals, rDNA, and stem cells, as applicable. 
  5. When you have attached all the required documents, submit the revised package, complete with required signatures, to the applicable committee office in IRBNet See section VII. Be sure to indicate the Submission Type as ‘‘Modification/Amendment’, or another applicable type.
