IBC Dates, Deadlines, and Fees

IBC Meeting Dates

The IBC may choose to review any submission at a convened Meeting. These submissions are designated for Full Committee Review (FCR). All new submissions involving recombinant nucleic acid molecules are designated for FCR. Non-recombinant submissions of increased complexity and concern have a higher likelihood of being designated for FCR.

When to Submit

Protocols must undergo a pre-review procedure that includes an assessment for completeness and confirmation of content prior to being sent to the Committee for review. It is recommended that complex protocols such as those describing multiple aims, RG-2 vectors, pathogenic agents, or novel procedures and technology be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the meeting. Researchers are encouraged to consider splitting complex projects especially those with multiple aims into additional protocol(s) when possible, to facilitate a faster review process. Protocols that have not sufficiently advanced in the review process may be withheld from the agenda until it has advanced in review process. If you have funding pending IBC approval, please contact the IBC. RSC personnel will work with you to help facilitate the protocol submission, review and approval process.
