Participant Recruitment

Recruitment Materials Do & Do NotWhen submitting materials for review, please use the Recruitment and Participant Study Material Submission Cover Page located in the forms section.

Some sponsors request that we obtain their approval for any recruitment materials submitted by sites. To find out if written sponsor approval is required for your study contact the Site Support Team or the sponsor of the research. Submission of materials without sponsor approval when such approval is required will result in delays.

When a site submits its own advertising or recruitment materials, the Board’s approval to use those materials extends only to that site.

For more details view the Participant Recruitment and Participant Study Materials Guidelines on the forms tab.
