Investigators are required to report local problems, concerns, serious risks, and failure to follow the protocol to the IRB for all human subjects research. These reports must be submitted to the IRB within ten (10) business days of discovery. Changes made to eliminate risk to subjects must be reported to the IRB within five (5) business days of discovery. Reportable items must be submitted in eIRB as a Reportable New Information (RNI). If the University of Arizona IRB is the IRB of Record for another site, the site must follow the same requirements. For additional information, please see our guidance on Reporting New Information.
