CIRB Uniform Document Posting (UDP) Quickguide

Dear CIRB Stakeholders,

The CIRB Operations Office has developed a Quickguide to clarify the role of the CIRB in the Uniform Document Posting (UDP) Initiative.

The new Quickguide, (‘CIRB Document Posting’) can be found on the CIRB Website under both the For Institutions and the For Networks pages.

The UDP Initiative was developed by CTEP and became effective on December 15, 2017.  Previous announcements describing the CIRB’s role in this process can be located on the Announcements Archive page of the CIRB Website, which is accessible from the Homepage.  This includes the original announcement issued December 15, 2017 and a clarification made on January 30, 2018.

The UDP Initiative is part of ongoing quality improvement efforts with the goal of reducing timelines and eliminating redundancy in postings.  This policy was mandated by CTEP and applies to the CIRB and all participating Network Groups. It requires that all study documents be posted to a single location to prevent duplication errors.

Please contact the CIRB Helpdesk at or at 1-888-657-3711 with questions or for further information.  As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions.
