Working With Multiple IRBs in the New Era of Mandated sIRB

On-Demand Webinar

Presented by:  James Riddle

NIH policy mandates use of a single IRB (sIRB).  OHRP Common Rule regulations will expand the requirement to all federal research in January 2020, and the FDA may issue similar requirements as part of regulatory harmonization. All this means that research sites will increasingly need to work with multiple IRBs, not just the local IRB. This transition will impact many aspects of how research sites conduct research and interact with the IRB, especially for sites previously accustomed to working with only a local IRB. In this webinar, James Riddle will discuss the implications for research sites in this new era of mandated sIRB.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Describe NIH and OHRP rules on sIRB
  • Identify the common similarities and differences that exist from one IRB to another
  • Develop practical ways to prepare your site for working with multiple IRB
