Continuing Review

This page has been updated to reflect the New Rule effective January 21, 2019.

All studies approved by COUHES require continuing review.

Approximately 60 days before approval expires COUHES will notify the Principal Investigator that a Continuing Review Questionnaire (CRQ) must be completed. This form must be completed and returned to the COUHES office by the deadline for submission datefor the next COUHES meeting prior to your expiration date.

After the completed CRQ is received and reviewed by COUHES a renewal letter will be sent to the Principal Investigator extending the approval. 

Full Board studies are renewed for one year. Expedited approval requires an annual progress report.

Within 30 days of closure of a protocol, the principle investigator must submit a Final Report Closure Form.

If the completed CRQ is not received by COUHES by the required date, the study will be automatically terminated and research grants related to the study will be suspended. No further research with human subjects can be conducted under this protocol without COUHES approval.
