The Protocol Amendment Summary screen provides Reviewers an overview of the changes being requested in this submission and also selects the sections of the protocol to be amended.   The Summary screen is initially presented when the Amendment is first created and must be completed before completing any changes.

IMPORTANT:  Investigators may return to the Amendment Summary screen at any time prior to submission by clicking the “Amendment Summary” link found in the Create Submission section.



1. Complete Amendment Summary - Enter a brief summary of the requested updates contained in this Amendment submission.  This is to assist the IRB Reviewers in locating and identifying the requested updates. The actual updates MUST be completed in the protocol itself.


2. Select Sections to Amend - You MUST check the box next to every section and/or Questionnaire you wish to Amend on this submission.  If a section’s box is not checked, NOTHING IN THAT SECTION MAY BE UPDATED.  If a checkbox is missed, the Investigator may return to the Amendment Summary screen at any time to select additional sections to edit by going to “Amendment Summary” found in the Create Submission section.

3. Save – Once the Amendment Summary screen is complete, click Save.  On initial save, the system will automatically open the General Info screen.  You may then use the left navigation to go to the appropriate section of the protocol to amend.
