The audit conducted by the designated IRB will meet the requirements of the FWA approved by the OHRP of Institution B for the protection of human subjects. The institution/organization A`s IRB will follow the written procedures for reporting its results and measures to the relevant officials of Institution B. The corresponding minutes of the IRB meetings are made available to Institution B upon request. Institution B remains responsible for complying with the provisions of the IRB and the conditions of its FWA approved by the OHRP. This document must be stored by both parties and made available to the OHRP upon request. If there is no Master Reliance Agreement, each study must be subject to a reliability agreement with a single study. The agreement may designate either chop`s IRB or the external site IRB as the verification IRB (SIRB). As a general rule, the audit IRB is located at the institution in which the IP is located in general. Chop IRB has created a toolkit for CHOP investigators that contains all the information about the process. Below are the components of the toolkit: CHOP has implemented numerous trust agreements for research in other pediatric institutions. In May 2014, Boston Children`s Hospital, Cincinnati Children`s Hospital and CHOP concluded a Master Reliance Agreement for research involving two or more institutions. This agreement was then amended and accepted by the other PEDSnet sites.
A master reliance agreement avoids the need to negotiate individual agreements when two or more signatories participate together in a study. Apart from the 9 SITES of EDSnet, 12 other paediatric institutions or universities have signed up to participate in this agreement. For each study, it is necessary to complete a survey form on which the review and exit websites agree to apply the main reliability agreement to this specific study. An Individual Investigator Agreement (IIA) is an agreement between Northwestern University and a single staff member who is not related to an institution with an FWA (for example. B former students who work after graduation with their faculty advisor, in the community with specific expertise, community partners). This agreement sets out the responsibilities of each examiner in terms of the protection of persons. The IIA is signed by the CHOP IRB has had a Master Reliance Agreement with the University of Pennsylvania since 2005. The last agreement was executed on 5 December 2016. Hundreds of studies have been included in the agreement, which benefits both IRBs and reduces the burden on CHOP and Penn investigators. SMART IRB was created to streamline the trust agreement process between institutions and is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). SMART IRB was funded by the NIH to facilitate a single review of the IRB to comply with the NIH mandate.
The SMART IRB-Master-Reliance agreement facilitates the authorisation process between participating institutions. A list of signatories to the SMART IRB agreement is available on the participating institution`s SMART IRB website. CHOP is the signatory to the SMART IRB agreement. A member of the Northwestern Study team files an application for the eIRB reliance agreement. You can ask all questions about the feasibility of Northwestern University, which serves as an IRB for a multi-site study, as well as all other requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
