The PI or read/write personnel can start an amendment. Go to the protocol workspace for the protocol you wish to amend. On the left hand side of the page you will see a button that says Create Amendment/Renewal:
Click on the button to begin amendment. The following page will be displayed:
Indicate if this submission is for an amendment or for the 3-yr renewal and provide a brief summary of what is being updated. Click “finish” when complete. The system will then begin to make a copy of your protocol. This may take several minutes depending on the system traffic. When it is finished, the workspace for the amendment will open:
The amendment will be given a temporary designation of “AM” in the protocol number (i.e. B00000036-AM) until it is approved. You may only have one amendment/renewal open at a time for a protocol.
If the amendment does not open, you can also find it by selecting the My Home tab. The amendment will be in your biosafety inbox.
To make changes to the protocol, select Edit Amendment:
Please note that if you want to modify the grant and personnel sections, you will have to create a grant/personnel change or GP. Amendments are submitted the same way a protocol is by clicking the Submit Protocol to OBS button within the protocol workspace. Once the amendment is approved it will be saved as the full protocol and will return to its original protocol number (i.e. B00000036).
