Updated guidances have been posted for the submission of amendments, annual renewals, and closures. Note that, beginning with studies expiring in January 2020, study expiry dates will likely no longer correspond to CTC meeting dates. As renewals must be reviewed at the CTC meeting scheduled prior to/on the study expiry date, please ensure they are submitted no later than one week before the applicable meeting.
The 2020 meeting dates and deadlines have been posted for all committees. Note that changes to dates and/or deadlines are denoted in red.
