Recent policy changes by the NIH and DHHS require the use of a single IRB of record for multisite research. The Network has established three single IRBs (SIRBs) to help meet this requirement. We will provide support, resources, tools, and a web-based platform (IREx) to ensure all site investigators understand how to use a SIRB at their institution, from initial submission to study closeout. The SIRBs use the SMART IRB Authorization Agreement as the basis for reliance.
