Two New Short Form Translations

Dear CIRB Stakeholders,

We are happy to announce that there are two additional CIRB-approved 2018 Common Rule Short Form consents (Tetum and Ukrainian) now available on CTSU’s website under Resources.   

Sites can use these approved short forms for any study approved by the CIRB if:

  1. There is no eligibility restriction in the protocol based on language that would prohibit enrollment of the participant;
  2. The Signatory Institution’s policies permit the use of short form consents;
  3. These policies have been reported to the CIRB on either the Annual Signatory Institution Worksheet or the Annual PI Worksheet.

A Short Forms Q & A is available on the CIRB Website.   

If you have any questions regarding the use of short forms, contact the CIRB Helpdesk: or 1-888-657-3711.

Kind regards,

NCI CIRB Operations Office
