Does Quorum Review IRB work with local IRBs or Ethics Committees when reviewing international clinical trials conducted outside of the U.S. and Canada?
Yes. Quorum will work with local IRBs or Ethics Committees whether by regulatory requirement or client preference or needs. You may seek dual oversight (meaning each IRB oversees the study) or the IRBs may divide oversight responsibilities (for example, the local IRB may review for local context and compliance with local laws and regulations, while Quorum Review provides ethics review under U.S. regulatory standards). In some circumstances, Quorum Review may serve as the sole IRB if permissible under the country of interest’s laws and regulations.
