UC IRB Reliance Registry for Studies under the UC MOU

Note: Effective July 1, 2012, UC investigators applying for a new or renewed reliance on another UC Institutional Review Board (IRB) will be required to do so using the UC Online Reliance Registry.

UC Santa Barbara has transitioned to the online UC IRB Reliance Registry for all studies in which our investigators rely on another UC campus or Lawrence Berkeley National Lab for IRB review or vice versa by means of the UC System Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The paper version of the Notice of Intent to Rely on one UC IRB (NOITR) has been phased out and all new reliance requests, renewals and amendments must be submitted via the online registry.

Below is a summary of the process for Reviewing and Relying investigators and campuses. For detailed information, see:

Registration

All first-time users must register with the UC IRB Reliance Registry before they create a new reliance request.

Creating a New Reliance Request

Submitting Renewals and Amendments

Reviewing PIs should submit Continuing Review applications of their studies to their campus IRB, per usual. Upon approval, the Reviewing IRB will update the study’s expiration date in the Registry. No Relying PI can continue work on the study if the Reviewing Campus does not submit a renewal on time.

Amendments must be submitted to the Reviewing IRB who will update any changes to the study in the Registry. The Relying PI is also responsible for informing the Reviewing PI of any necessary amendments.

Reporting Adverse/Unanticipated Events

Reports of adverse and/or unanticipated events must be submitted to the Reviewing IRB who will update any changes to the study in the Registry. The Relying PI is also responsible for informing the Reviewing PI of any adverse/unanticipated events.
