IRB Deferral Agreement Request Forms

Deferral Request forms

Research projects involving multiple IRB’s may qualify for an inter-institutional IRB Authorization Agreement (IAA). This will allow one IRB to defer review and oversight to another IRB.

Please review this guidance document on working with multiple IRBs for helpful hints on the deferral process: Instructions for Multi-Institutional Research
