Sponsor Final Report no longer required & California Bill of Rights now available on the website only

Effective May 26, 2016, Sterling IRB will now consider a study to be closed when all participating investigative sites have notified the IRB that the study is complete at their site via submission of the Site Final Report. Therefore, the submission of a Sponsor final report is no longer required to close each study. Any studies that are currently pending submission of the Sponsor Final Report will be considered closed as of the date that all participating investigative sites for the study were closed to Sterling IRB review.

In addition, the California Experimental Subject’s Bill of Rights will no longer be incorporated in Sterling IRB consent documents. Instead, English and Spanish versions of the Bill of Rights are now available on the Sterling website in the Forms Section.
