How do I use myIRB to transition an ongoing study initially approved before January 21, 2019 to the 2018 Common Rule?

Studies eligible to transition to the 2018 Common Rule can only make the transition at the time of Continuing Review using CR1.0 “Would you like to transition this study to the new 2018 Common Rule regulations?”

If you answer this question “Yes” the decision is permanent and the entire 2018 Common Rule applies to the study going forward until it closes.

If you answer “No” to transitioning to the 2018 Common Rule, you will continue to be asked at each subsequent Continuing Review whether you want to transition at that time.

Important note: Once a response is entered and saved, the questions will be locked for editing and the response can only be changed by removal of the draft or withdrawal of the pending form.
