No changes to research that has been approved by the IRB may be made, including changing study personnel, until the request for the change has been submitted and approved, unless the change is necessary to prevent an apparent immediate hazard to subjects.

For research that has received a determination of exempt or not human subjects research, changes should be submitted only if they are extensive enough to alter the original determination.

Amendments are submitted through the electronic system using the Change Request & Amendments form.

More information about amendments may be found by contacting us or at HRPP Policies and Procedures.
