IBC Registration Forms

  • For Human Subjects studies that require IBC approval, use an HS or HSP form.
  • For all other studies that require IBC approval:
    • UR’s IBC uses a multi-form system. You must complete the LAB and G/Project form to meet the NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules. 
    • For new Principal Investigators, these forms are provided as a single registration document. After the initial registration, each form will be provided as a separate document for easier updating.
  • If you need a current copy of your lab’s form(s) for updating, please contact Sonia Rosenberger, or your Lab Safety Unit inspector. For updates, submit them to the IBC Coordinator by the paperwork deadline for the next IBC meeting.  Please note the IBC no longer requires special formatting for updates.


  • Need help determining if your study requires either of these forms?  Please send the clinical Study Protocol and Investigator’s Brochure(s) to the Biosafety Officer.

Form Name

Form Information

Human Subjects (HS form, HSP form)

 Laboratory Registration Form (LAB form)

  • The LAB/L form, one per Principal Investigator, provides the IBC and Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) lab-level information about where biological agents and materials are used and stored, engineering controls (aerosol containment equipment), and work practice controls (disinfection practices, medical surveillance). 
  • The 2020 form version includes the previously separate personnel list and can do dual-duty as a lab-specific biosafety manual, if desired.

 Project Registration Form (G form)

  • The G Form describes experiments. After the initial registration, Principal Investigators may choose to have one G Form for each grant/project or UCAR (animal protocol), or consolidate their projects onto a single G Form, whichever works best for the researcher.

 Viral Vector Form (VV form) Form VV - Word Version (updated 8/2016)

  • The VV Form provides additional information for viral vectors and recombinant viruses, with each virus type on a separate form [i.e. one for all adenovirus vectors (rAdV-), a separate one for all lentivirus vectors (rLV-), etc.]
