How to Create a SMART IRB Account

How to Create a SMART IRB Account to Submit a Request for Reliance (adapted from SMART IRB)

If you are an investigator at a Participating Institution who would like to submit a request for reliance using the SMART IRB Online Reliance System, complete the "Request Investigator Access" form and follow the instructions. It is not unusual for an investigator to delegate the responsibility for completing reliance requests to another member of the research team, such as a study coordinator. In this scenario, the study coordinator or another member of the research team should also complete the "Request Investigator Access" form.

Once the form has been submitted, your request will be forwarded to the Reliance Point of Contact (POC) for your institution, who must authorize your access to the system. This process may take up to five business days.  Once you have been authorized, you will receive an email inviting you to register for an account in the Online Reliance System.
