Three Year and Annual Renewals:  All protocols are reviewed 2 months prior to their scheduled expiration date to avoid lapses in approval. For questions regarding what to attach to your Three Year Renewal, please refer to the Submission Checklist available under “Resources.”

New Protocols and Significant Amendments: These must be submitted for pre-review one month before the scheduled meeting date. Please refer to this visual diagram for clarification. Protocols should be submitted to the UAWC office via Cayuse and the office will forward them to the appropriate pre-reviewers. The pre-reviewers will send their comments to the UAWC Office which will coordinate all comments and send them back to the investigator. Revised protocols must be submitted by the final submission deadline with the Submission Checklist for inclusion in the committee packets.

Annual Renewals: Protocols must be submitted to the UAWC Administrator by the final submission deadline preceding the scheduled meeting date. The pre-review deadlines below do not apply for annual renewal submissions.
