IAA/Reliance Agreement

InstitutionsThis agreement outlines the roles and responsibilities of an institution and a central IRB when arrangements are made to rely on a central (external) IRB for oversight of human research.

Schulman has developed a template as a guide to document your institution’s specific requirements (including FWA requirements where applicable).

This reliance agreement also serves as an IRB Authorization Agreement (IAA) as required for research conducted under your institution’s FWA. Schulman can execute this agreement as a global agreement with your institution or as a study-specific agreement during the start-up phase of a specific study.
