What you can do now

SMART IRB Online Reliance System - beta launching May 4th, 2017

Central to SMART IRB's mission to enable collaborative studies, the SMART IRB Reliance System is a tool for investigators and institutions to request, track, and document reliance arrangements on a study-by-study basis.

  • Workflow-based system connects investigators and institution POCs in a centralized process to select a Reviewing IRB and identify Relying Institutions.
  • Automated notifications make clear when action is required.
  • Transparent decision-making makes it easy to track the status of reliance arrangements.
  • System-issued determination notifies all parties of the Reviewing IRB, Relying Institutions, and investigator responsibilities.
