Beginning March 1, 2020, The Office of the Institutional Review Board (OIRB) and the Office of the Conflict of Interest Review Board (OCIRB) will begin coordinating efforts regarding training and disclosures of financial interests. As of that date, Initial submissions of expedited and convened IRB applications will be reviewed:

  • to verify that all responsible personnel listed on the IRB protocol have current Financial Conflict of Interest training and
  • to ensure that all responsible personnel have a current disclosure of financial interests on file with the CIRB.

Applicable IRB applications not meeting one or both of these requirements will be returned to the investigator until the requirements have been met.  Please review the following document for instructions on how to review current conflict of interest disclosure and training status of personnel listed on an IRB protocol.
