Biosafety Forms

The Office of Research Protections at Appalachian State University implemented the Hazard Safety (IBC) protocol-processing software by Cayuse in June 2022. Paper forms no longer exist. All existing protocols (the final PDFs, amendments, etc.) were migrated into Cayuse with their original expiration dates. Notifications for continuing (annual) reviews and three-year expiration will come from the Cayuse system. Please check your spam box if you are not receiving these notifications.

To Access the system, click on the Biosafety (IBC) tab at the top of the page to take you back to the home landing page. Click the “Hazard Safety (IBC) Log in” button located in the left column with the CITI training button and log in with your AppState ID and password. Please contact the IBC Administrator at if you have any questions.

A Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is an agreement that outlines the terms of use for materials transmitted between two parties. MTAs should always be considered when conducting any outside collaborations with industry or other academic institutions. MTAs are typically used to protect materials that may be proprietary and/or embody a trade secret.
