The IRB requires an amendment to note any changes related to an approved study. The Amendment application must describe the modification(s) requested including reasons for the change, whether the modification will increase or decrease the risk of harm to the subject, and whether the consent form requires modification.

Please Note: For-profit and/or industry sponsored studies must pay IRB fees before the review process begins.

Amendment Application Submission Requirements

Investigators requesting changes, modifications, and addenda to a currently approved research protocol must submit a completed ERICA amendment application. Changes should be submitted no later than 30 days after receipt from study sponsors, collaborators, etc.

Changes must be made to all documents or forms in ERICA that relate to the specific change(s) requested. Documents should be attached to the Documents and Attachments page of the update study portion of the application or revised in the update study portion of the application.
