The PD/PI should submit a request for changes using this form at least one month prior to the anticipated implementation date. Under unusual circumstances, the PD/PI may request a designated-member review. Call the ORC for guidance and assistance with requests for designated-member review. Minor changes can be approved by the IACUC Chair. Significant changes will require review and approval by IACUC.
