New Guidelines For Permitted Boilerplate Language Additions

Dear CIRB Stakeholders,

NCI’s goal is to limit changes to the model consent document, and to ensure that any information added to the consent document is related to research. Please review  Dr. Jeff Abrams’s letter regarding this new policy.

The NCI CIRB website contains an updated version of the Boilerplate Q &A Quickguide and new Boilerplate Guidelines Quickguide to assist your institution in complying with this directive.

If you have any questions, please contact the CIRB at ncicirbcontact@emmes.com.

Thank you,

Laura Covington, MS, CIP
Director, Local Operations
