Communicating with Staff During Review

During review (and after), you can complete the Add Comment activity to:

  1. Post a note to the submission history that all individuals with access to the submission may view, and
  2. If selected, send a notice to:
    > PI/PI Proxy and Primary Contact
    > Study Team Members and/or 
    > The assigned IRB Coordinator (If the IRB Coordinator box is selected and there is no assigned IRB Coordinator, a notice is sent to all members of the IRB office.)

• The information in the comment is visible to all individuals with access to the submission even if they are not selected as notice recipients.
• Do not attach items which are part of the regulatory review.
• If a submission is in the Clarifications Requested state, use the Submit Response activity to send information back to the IRB for continued review.
