Researcher must keep copies of signed consent forms under lock and key, available for HSC inspection.
Researcher should keep own file of all correspondence with HSC.
Researcher must notify HSC of unexpected events that change the research procedure or raise risks or other concerns that UCAR should know about. Researcher's file should document such events.
For research protocols that have undergone full committee review (vs. expedited review), when those studies continue for more than one calendar year the researcher will provide a yearly status to the HSC via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Status should include: 1) whether the research is still ongoing, and 2) if its scope involving human subjects research as presented to the HSC remains the same.
If the HSC has given preliminary approval of a protocol, it is up to the researcher to update the HSC and resubmit the protocol once the grant is awarded or the study scope is more complete.
The researcher is required to notify the HSC annually, as to the status of the research, as well as send email notification when the study is completed.
