How do I renew IRB approval for a study? How do I renew IRB approval for the investigators involved in a study?

Quorum will send notification of pending expiration to the primary study contact approximately 75 days before study approval is due to expire. To renew study approval, please submit a completed Protocol Continuing Review Report at least 60 days prior to the study expiration date. 

Quorum will send notification of pending expiration to all active sites under Quorum’s jurisdiction approximately 75 days before the site’s approval is due to expire. All sites scheduled to remain active after the last day of their current approval period must submit a completed Site Status Report at least 45 days before their expiration date. All sites scheduled to close before the last day of their current approval period must submit a completed Site Status Report prior to their expiration date. 

All sites that do not submit a completed report before their expiration date will be scheduled for consideration of suspension and, potentially, termination by the Board. (Please see the Continuing Review and Site Closure FAQ for more information)
