Revised IRB Procedures 

The TWU IRB has revised the IRB Procedures, effective June 7, 2018. The primary change in procedures is that of record retention for files. IRB records will now be kept three years from the file close date rather than four years.  Other changes are non substantive and are intended to provide clarification regarding individual roles, definitions of key terms, and procedures and processes.
