Reliance Requests

Reliance Requests

Reliance is the process of using a single IRB for review of multiple sites or investigators at multiple institutions. Reliance and single IRB review are now required by several federal initiatives including the National Institutes of Health Single IRB (sIRB) policy, Common Rule revisions, and the 21st Century Cures Act.

You may request that IU IRBs rely on an external IRB for review and approval of your research or provide approval for non-affiliated investigators or sites.
