Directions and Forms
As of Tuesday 2 October 2012 the SBSIRB will be using IRBNet for all submittals. Due to this transition, directions for e-mail submittal have been disabled and the SBSIRB will no longer be accepting new e-mail submittals. Any new submittals will have to occur via IRBNet. IRBNet access will replace this information at the time of activation.
