IBC Protocol Submissions and Forms
If you are a new investigator or If you are proposing work for BSL2 containment or above, contact the Biosafety Officer (304-293-7157, AAELLIOTT@mail.wvu.edu ) at the same as you are preparing your IBC Registration in order to arrange for a lab inspection. Allow enough time in advance for scheduling the inspection and correction of any potential problems. Your inspection must be completed and all action items corrected before the IBC will issue approval.
Yearly Update and Amendments
PI’s will need to complete a protocol update form every year after their protocol is approved. If the protocol is changing from that described in the approved IBC registration, you will need to amend your IBC registration (changes in personnel, work procedure, biological agent, lab location) and resubmit it. The biosafety officer and IBC chair will decide if the amendment can be approved with or without full committee review. There will also be yearly lab inspections coinciding with the update form submission.
IBC registrations are valid for three years and must be renewed if you intend to continue research work. You will be notified 90 days prior to the due date for your renewal, and you’ll receive periodic reminders thereafter.
