IRB offers additional on-site rooms to address challenges some people may face with virtual hearings

If you do not have a suitable place or the right technology to participate in your virtual hearing, the IRB can help.

As of Monday, June 6, 2022, the IRB is offering access to additional hearing rooms and technology to those who do not have a suitable location or device to participate in their hearings. Please note that the presiding member and any assigned interpreter will still participate virtually. They will not be physically present in the hearing room.

To request access to an IRB hearing room for your virtual hearing, please contact the appropriate registry. The contact information is included in your Notice to Appear.

The IRB requires at least 5 days' notice to make a hearing room available. We encourage you to make your request as early as possible. ​
