The Reviewing IRB now has the ability to issue a Site-Specific Determination letter for any institution that has indicated their willingness to rely. From the Request Details page, any POC or POC Backup from the Reviewing IRB can issue the site-specific letters by clicking the 'Issue Site-Specific Letters' button as shown below.
From the ensuing page, the POC can issue a site-specific determination letter on a site-by-site basis prior to entering a final determination for the overall request. A site involved will be listed in the table as shown below if they have expressed their willingness to rely.
This action will issue the Site-Specific Determination Letter and send an email to all involved parties notifying them. To download a PDF of the Site-Specific Determination letter, navigate to the Institution Reliance Form for the site in question by clicking on the name of the institution in the left-hand navigation panel of the Request Details page.
The download button for the letter can be found at the bottom of the Institution Reliance Form.
Once a site-specific determination letter is issued, it cannot be revoked. This is only a site-specific determination letter, a final determination letter for the overall request will be issued once all sites have submitted their reliance form.
