Posted February 3, 2020 by Ashley Washburn

Effective Jan. 20, federal policy under the Common Rule requires U.S. institutions to use a single IRB of record, or sIRB, for approval of cooperative research projects.

To prepare for implementing this change, the Institutional Review Board recommends that University of Nebraska-Lincoln investigators review the following requirements.  

For additional information, review the IRB Changes to the Common Rule, IRB A-Z Guidance on sIRB/Cooperative Research and IRB Policy 3.012. Investigators also may contact the IRB at 472-6965.
