What do I need to know about submitting amendments on an approved application?
- Be sure to review the training guide on Amending an application as the process is different from the previous system
- Be sure to follow the instructions on How to submit an amendment on an imported record if you are submitting a changes on an application that was migrated from the old system to the new system
- When revising an imported record, you are only required to update sections of the application that have changed. You should not be updating the entire application. For example, if you are only adding a new participant group, you would describe these details within the ‘Participant’ section and upload the new version of the Information Letter for this group to the ‘Consent and Withdrawal’ section.
How do permissions work?
- In the 'People' section, be sure to complete the permission level for each person listed on the application by checking the access level you want to give to each member of the research team
