Continuing Review Submission Guidance
The Health Sciences IRBs will no longer publish specific deadline dates for the submission of continuing review protocol progress reports. Research teams are responsible for monitoring when IRB approval of their studies expires, but will receive automated reminders from ARROW at 75, 60, and 30 days before a study expires.
To allow the IRB sufficient time to review and reapprove a study prior to the expiration date, please follow the required submission timelines for continuing reviews noted below.
- For studies that were submitted and approved as initial reviews through ARROW, the continuing review protocol progress report needs to be provided to the IRB 60 days prior to the study's expiration date.
- For studies that are submitted as new applications per the Five Year Renewal Policy, the initial application needs to be provided to the IRB 90 days (or 150 days for VA studies) before the study expires.
