Reminder: June 1st Compliance Deadline for New Studies to use Updated IRB Consent Form Templates

As announced by email on May 4th, 2022, the IRB consent and assent form templates have undergone extensive revisions to bring our campus into compliance with new policies and regulations, to reduce the number of stipulations regarding the most common consent form errors, to better inform research participants, and to provide more detailed instructions to study teams. The updated templates are now available at

All new studies submitted to the IRB on or after June 1, 2022, are required to use the new templates.

New studies received on/after June 1st that do not use the new templates will be considered non-compliant with Submission Standards and will be returned to the PI without IRB screening or review.  

Please see the May 4th Bulletin for more information, including:

  • Summary of changes
  • Instructions for new studies vs. already-approved studies
  • List of forms that have been updated
