The Annual Check-In Form is now available for all research studies that have a “Check-In Req” study status.  The Annual Check-In Form is submitted instead of the Continuing Review/Final Report form. Read below for more information about the process:

  • WHO: Research studies with a “Check-In Req” study status.
  • WHAT: Submit an Annual Check-In Form by the listed due date (same field as the expiration date in iRIS) to keep the study active in iRIS or to inactivate the study.
  • WHEN: Investigators must submit by the due date listed in iRIS (and listed in the notification email).
  • WHERE: The Annual Check-In Form is available in iRIS in the same area as all submission forms, including Modification/Notification, Continuing Review, NC Protocol Deviation Report, and more.
  • HOW:
    • Annual Check-In Notifications will be sent to investigators and study contacts approximately 30 days prior to the check-in due date.
    • Investigators/Study Contacts will create and submit the Annual Check-In Form in iRIS.
    • Based on the information provided, the form should be processed administratively by HRPP Staff.
  • WHY: Under the 2018 Common Rule, annual continuing review is no longer required for certain minimal risk studies. These studies are identified in iRIS with a “Check-In Req” study status. Per HRPP Policy 404: Continuing Review, an administrative check-in is required annually to monitor the progress of the research.

Please contact IRB Office at 405-325-8110 if you have any questions or need assistance.
