The Special Review window is where any additional regulatory or export control identification is placed. If the protocol contains even the possibility of these aspects, it should be listed here. Identified items are a flag only and will not prohibit the submission of the protocol.

All identified items should always have an initial status of "Pending". As previously stated, this window is for identification purposes only and is used to inform PACUC Admin of records that need to be sent to various Institutional Authorities (such as REM) for additional review.
