The project may be undertaken for a one year period starting with the first date of the meeting at or for which the application was reviewed. Changes to any aspect of the protocol, however, must be submitted to the UCAIHS for review and approval prior to being instituted.

To maintain approval to continue the work subsequent to the end date of the initial approved year, the investigator must submit and have approved a Continuing Review Progress Report prior to the expiration of the current approval.
