Designated Review 

Projects deemed Equivalent to a Previously Approved Project

  • The IBC may determine that a proposed project is equivalent to a project that has been previously approved.

  • The Chair and Biosafety Officer make this decision. 

  • There can be no substantive differences since the previous project that would change the biosafety and public health considerations.  

  • Designated protocols will be posted for IBC Member review for 5 business days.  Approval will be granted afterwards if no concerns are brought forward.
