This is a reminder that ANY change to your existing BUA must be submitted to the IBC for review and approval prior to implementation. Amendments may include, but are not limited to, changes in procedures/methods, personnel updates, addition of new materials, and addition of lab locations.

Personnel only changes are considered a minor amendment to an existing BUA and will undergo an administrative review by the IBC administrative team, with approval usually processed within 24-48 hrs. Please ensure new and existing personnel have completed the appropriate training for a quick and smooth approval.

New personnel should not begin work on IBC-related activities until the BUA amendment has been approved.

You can find more information in the IBC Frequently Asked Questions and our guidance on how to Create an Amendment in SafetyNet.  

Please contact if you have further questions regarding when to create an amendment and the IBC review process.
