Your protocol must be renewed every five years. If you choose to terminate your protocol, you may do that at any time.
Renewals & Protocol Closure
Institutional Biosafety Committee protocols are approved for five years. At the end of that period, your protocol will be rereviewed and approved by the IBC. Your renewal must be submitted during the month in which your original protocol was approved. The submission process is the same as the annual renewal process.Learn about the review process
