Each site is responsible for submitting an initial application. The first submitting/lead site is responsible for submitting all core study documents. Additional sites will not need to submit any study documentation that has been submitted by the first submitting/lead site, irrespective of when the additional site joins. However, additional sites are responsible for submitting documents that have not been submitted by the first submitting/lead site (e.g. documents pertaining to the additional site: CV, social media plan, advertising, etc.). Please refer to BA F1.1.1 Submission requirements for further information.
Additional site submissions will be considered by the Chair/reviewers as the first submitting/lead site enters cycle comments, post-HREC review. When the first submitting/ lead site is ready for approval, any additional sites that have fulfilled the HREC’s requirements will be included on the first submitting/lead site approval letter.
