Friday, September 30, 2022: Next deadline for submission of biosafety protocols

Posting Date(s)

The next deadline for submitting biosafety applications including new applications, renewals, and/or amendments is Friday, September 30, 2022. These applications will be reviewed at the October 20, 2022, meeting.

All research compliance applications, including biosafety application forms, must be submitted through the Researcher Portal. Information about the Researcher Portal, including instructions for using the site, is available at https://www.upei.ca/research-services/forms. Contact researchcompliance@upei.ca if you have any questions about accessing or using the Researcher Portal.

Please note that the IBC has instituted a new category of protocol amendment: biosafety permit minor amendment. This event form is included in the Researcher Portal. Minor amendments that are strictly limited to changes in personnel and/or funding can be submitted at any time but require up to a two-week review period. They are normally reviewed by the IBC chair or designate and the BSO or designate. If the amendment is approved, then an approval notification will be sent to the PI. Submissions via this route may be sent for full committee review at the discretion of the IBC chair and the BSO.  

For more information about the IBC review and approval process, please contact the Compliance Coordinator at researchcompliance@upei.ca
