Welcome to ICON Integrated Compliance Oversight Network (ICON)

The Division of Research will be rolling out a new protocol submission system called ICON in September 2016!

The first component to be released is the IRB module, which will replace the IRB part of RAMP.

IRB Features

  • Electronic submission of initial protocols, modifications and reportable new information and continuing reviews
  • Allows for submission of External IRB protocols
  • Electronic workflow routing and review, including parallel ancillary reviews
  • Integrated meeting management facility
  • Automated reminders
  • Consent form stamping and watermarking

IRB Benefits

  • Keeps everyone notified of important milestones and the need to attend to their part of the process
  • Ensures the study team uses only the latest, approved consent form with the IRB's watermark
  • Manages the audit trail for all document versions
