New Exempt Archiving Process

New Archiving Process for Exempt Studies Only

Exempt studies do not currently have an expiration date. In order to properly manage these studies in OSIRIS, we have implemented a new process where Exempt studies will be archived after 3 years. Investigators will receive an email notification 3 weeks before the archiving process will take place and be given the opportunity to extend the study another 3 years if still conducting the research. The notification will provide instructions on extending the archive date. If you have any questions, contact the IRB at askirb@pitt.edu.
