Reliance (Authorization) Agreements Frequently Asked Questions

Note: On July 26, 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Office of Science Technology Policy (OSTP) published an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) titled, Human Subjects Research Protections: Enhancing Protections for Research Subjects and Reducing Burden, Delay, and Ambiguity for Investigators. This ANPRM contains a proposal to mandate the use of a single IRB for all domestic multi-site studies. Should this proposal be incorporated into the Final Rule, institutions may need to address certain logistical issues including the establishment of reliance (authorization) agreements.
