Your Guide to sIRB Mandates

While single IRB (sIRB) mandates have been on the scene for a while now, it’s still not always clear how a site must comply. Many are still asking questions such as:

  • What do you do if a study involves overlapping sIRB requirements for two different agencies?
  • What isn’t addressed in the Office of Human Research Protection’s (OHRP’s) draft sIRB guidance?
  • How do exceptions to an sIRB mandate work?

In this webinar, find out what the regulations require, what is and isn’t covered by sIRB mandates, and what the research community still has questions about.

Our experts are uniquely qualified to give insights: one who helped put the Revised Common Rule mandate in place, and another who led that mandate’s implementation at an academic institution.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe key features of federal sIRB mandates (OHRP, National Institutes of Health [NIH])
  • Explain how to navigate situations where more than one mandate applies
  • Discuss key issues about sIRB utilization federal agencies haven’t yet addressed
