New Procedure Effective December 17, 2012:
The approved consent form and recruitment materials may only be used between the date
of approval and the expiration date of a given research protocol. Stamps will no longer
be required on consent documents.
Beginning December 17, 2012, the procedure below has been rescinded.
Beginning May 1,1999 any application approved for research using human subjects will
require that the approved consent form include a label from the IRB giving the protocol
number and the date approved. This will ensure that the correct, approved version
is being used. It will also serve as a reminder of when the protocol must be reviewed
It will be necessary to submit the actual approved version in the format you intend
to use. The IRB Coordinator will affix the label and return it to you as a PDF document
through University of Memphis email. If you prefer, you may pick it up from the Office
of Research Support Services, Administration 315.
